Today I witnessed something I thought only happened in a third world country. I've always been proud to be and American and couldn't understand why other countries government transitions were so brutal and full of riots and upheavals. I guess I have been living in a cocoon of ignorance.
What happened in D.C. today is something that is unspeakable and should be an embarrassment to all Americans no matter what party you voted for. What has happened to us as a country and as Americans? Do we hate each other so much that we are willing to tear our country apart when we disagree with someone eases opinion or ideas?
God help us if that is so! We can blame the media, Trump, the Democrats, the Republicans or others for what is happening, but we are all at fault. You may have the right to express your opinions and beliefs, but that doesn't mean everyone has your same opinions and beliefs. Until we learn to start listening to someone else's ideas or side of a story, this place we are now in will continue to spin out of control.
This country was founded on the principle of law, respect of the people that make and enforce these laws and on religious principles. The problem seems to be the lawless radicals in our population have taken over the country. How much longer are we going to take this?
