WASHINGTON — Violent protesters loyal to President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday and forced lawmakers into hiding, in a stunning attempt to overturn America's presidential election, undercut the nation's democracy and keep Democrat Joe Biden from replacing Trump in the White House.

The National Guard and state and federal police were called in for control, and the mayor of Washington imposed a rare evening curfew. One person was reported to have been shot.

The most important and really sad thing is that a woman was shot and killed. I don't agree with the violent protesters that were there. I did find Biden's statement interesting, considering he failed to even recognize the riots that went on all summer. The only thing that will bring us together is revival through Christ. Anything else is a band aid.
