January 6, 2021
January 6th 2021 will forever be etched in history as a black letter day in American politics. A large mob invaded the United States Capitol building and occupied vast sections of the historical structure. Elected representatives had to scramble for safety.
The divisive rhetoric was more evident than ever. Immigrants and people of color have, on numerous occasions, been the target of hate groups. With a deadly pandemic causing widespread misery around the country, it is sad that the main news right now is something else.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and former Governor of Michigan Rick Snyder jointly issued a statement asking for peace and understanding. Regardless of party affiliation, elected officials across the country are united in appealing for peace and condemning the mob behavior in Washington DC today. This is what makes America great.
Let us hope that things will get better after today’s low point. Be mindful of current events in America and be safe.
