New Years Eve of 2020 gave us some hope for the new year. For some reason, we all think that once the clock strikes midnight, our hopes are refilled to 100 just like in a game. For a moment, I felt that! It’s a new year, new goals; a new chapter…And then January 6th 2021 came and slapped us all back to reality.
There is a lot of issues I have with today. There are a lot of feelings that are circulating. I am beyond mad. I am beyond frustrated. It is hard to be hopeful right now. We have the leader of the free World incite to his supporters to fight and march onto the capital. If you think this is inaccurate and say “well, that is not what he meant.” IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT HE MEANT. It’s about the message, tone, and position of influence. He “lead” a group (from his comfy confines of the White House) to the capital building. They managed to break through barriers and storm the federal building. I know you remember when BLM protesters gathered near the federal buildings…There was no way they were getting close to breaching it without getting shot and killed. Pro Trump protesters got in within minutes without violence from law enforcement. Believe it or not, there were officers of the law taking selfies with the violators when they were in the capital. I’m just sick.
Why are they storming the capital? Because their team lost? Shoot, if that’s the case, I want a redo on the Seahawks-Steelers Super bowl. I think the refs stole that from us…I think that’s how it works right? Yeah, not so much. I’m all for protesting for what you believe in, but do it peacefully and get your elected officials involved to make change. After all of the violence today, there is one good thing that may come from this. Pro-Trumpers won’t like it. This event may just bring the GOP (the real GOP) together with the Dems to vote to certify the election without protest. That is my hope. We will see what happens.
