I don’t know about you, but when I watched the pictures of domestic terrorists invading the US Congress while it was in session I was struck with fear. “Is this the beginning of the end for the “United” States? Will anarchy replace our democracy? I couldn’t believe what I was watching. The only saving grace to yesterday was that all those who threatened to bring their weapons with them didn’t carry out that. Or maybe they just left them on the bus?
Nineteen years ago, I watched live as another group of terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center. The fear I felt then was less than I felt yesterday. I am writing this post before I go to bed and there may be some of them hidden inside that massive building still. I hope everyone who illegally entered through those doors and broken windows are prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law.
Now, to finally get down to the main purpose of this post, I realize that those who invaded the capital were likely a rather small minority of those who came. Were those supposedly non-involved as shaken as I was about what was happening around them? If not, what will it take to get them to realize that their false belief in stolen elections and other blatant lies could result in the destruction of our country? Is there anything that can make them finally come to their senses?
I pray that they will somehow realize how close they came to a totally unnecessary tragedy yesterday.
I’m sure Trump’s ego got a big boost yesterday. After he incited the riots with his insidious words in front of the White House, and then see them actually do what he told them to do, must have made him feel very powerful. I hope they drag him out of the Oval Office kicking and screaming thirteen days from now. It would only be fitting don’t you think?
