A Broken Democracy

In response to the horrors of January 6, 2021, I am at a loss for words. Some may argue that what occurred was predictable, but I guess in my mind I never thought it would ever come to this. In short, we witnessed an attempt to overthrow our government, our democracy, propelled by our current president and certain members of Congress. I am disgusted, I am unsettled, and I am saddened; saddened in the lack of response from the police, saddened by the lack of response from our president, and saddened by the lack of dignity posed by his supporters. America was once seen as the pinnacle of democracy to the rest of the world but in reality, it has become destructive and broken under the tyranny of Mr. Trump.
