I took for granted so much about America.
The election process.
The peaceful transition of power.
The behavior of professional, adult politicians.
Last Wednesday changed everything.
Now I feel the fragility of our democracy is real.
I see the weakness of our nation divided against one another, families and friends.
Trapped in a pandemic that is ripping holes in families.
Bad behavior does not need a group label. Personal choice. Personal responsibility.
We must stop generalizing the actions of a few as the position of an entire party.
Violence is not resolved by blame.
When we talk about rights, we are not all on the same page. Or even in the same book.
I do not have the emotional capacity to process this quickly and easily.
I will write about fun and thoughtful things another day.
Not this week.
My mind is consumed with current events.
Thank you for your understanding.
Stay prayerful, my friends.
