A Mockery of Democracy

It’s kind of hard to think about all of this. We finally got out of one of the most difficult and confusing years of most of our lives, and only a few days into the new one, democracy is not only attacked, but mocked by these mindless goons. It truly felt like some kind of video game I’ve played or a really cheesy movie scene. To think that 14,000 were arrested during the BLM protests in late spring to early summer but only 83 people were arrested for yesterday makes me sick to my stomach. This country needs a whole lot of healing in a small amount of time, I just hope we’re up for it.
