The Capitol Mess

I never thought I would live to see the day when rioters would even try to break into the Capitol, much less actually do it. They managed to get in, cause damage, and someone even died. I am heartbroken for the country. And the fact that the president of the United States urged people to do it, is beyond the pale.

For years I have been trying to understand the frustration of the other side, and what must drive them to believe in a man who so obviously doesn’t care about anyone but himself. I can’t understand how anyone can’t see that he is a master of saying what you want to hear, regardless of what the truth is.

I am weary, and lately have found myself saying things out loud that I know are not what I really believe or want to have happen; my frustration level is maxed out.

I am trying to do a personal reset, to shake this frustration, and to get back to the person I really am. That doesn’t mean, however, that I can be walked on & pushed around. I have some sympathy for the people who were caught up in the Capitol violence, because I think a lot of them were just following what someone they had placed their trust in wanted them to do. Yes, I have some sympathy, but I also believe that you are responsible for what you do, and what you fall for. My sincerest hope is that those people are all caught and prosecuted.

This can’t stand. We can’t just turn a blind eye to what happened. Many people saw something like this coming, and those that allowed it to happen should not be let off with no consequences.

May we come together and work toward a better future for this country.
