‘While democracy can be periodically delayed, it can never be permanently defeated.” – Amanda Gorman
For most of us there are two days that we will forever remember – 9/11/2001 and 1/6/2021. In 2001, it was 19 Islamic extremists (15 of whom were Saudi citizens) who attacked our country. In 2021, it was a mob of more than 800 American citizens who attacked the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to thwart our democracy. These “citizens” pledged their allegiance to the leader of the Republican Party, not the country.
