State Of Affairs In America

Saturday, January 09, 2021

I am not sure where to even begin with this. As an activist I was ashamed and sadden by the behavior of Trump supporter's who went to the Capitol and disrespected it like that. They put lives on the line Wednesday. And Trump used it to his advantage.

In America, you can disagree with the election results. That is perfectly your right, but they went there with guns and bombs knowing that there was top officials in the building. Waving Confederate flags and wearing shirts that said "Civil War". It was sickening.

I am happy that people are being arrested and held accountable. They have no problem arresting my side when we protest, and now I want to see the same for them. And even more so, since their only reason for going was not a social justice issue, but just mad over their guy losing. Shameful to say the least.

It has got to the point where we cannot even look each other in the face. Everyone has became the enemy, instead of loving one another.

    What happened in the capital is a stain on our country and I hope and pray that it opens the eyes of the GOP AND that both sides of the aisle can figure out a way to start to come together. When Turmp was elected I feared the worst and sadly it has come to pass.

    However our country has been through equally horrible times and we've come out of it. Even though the riot on Wednesday was terrible, in the end democracy prevailed. And it will prevail again!

    Your blog is very wise. Trump needs to be accountable as well or he will just do this again in office or not. They did not stop Hitler but we have a chance to stop Trump.

    There definitely has to be respect for the law, no matter which side of the aisle we sit and no matter what our opinions are. Period.
