Sammiscribbles Weekend Writing Prompt

Crucible fits this week, considering the events of January 6, 2021 here in the United States of America. I am sure we all agree it was a tragedy and to me the worst was the unnecessary deaths of our citizens. I realize in many places on this planet these are daily occurrences, where life and death is seen or heard or read of almost daily.

Protests and freedom of speech are protected here by our government. What happened on Wednesday wasn’t freedom of expression, it was terrorism, a crucible of hate, racism, idiocy, destruction, and violence.

We’re now woefully shamed.

  1. As an outside observer, the thing that worries me is that I hear plenty of people talking the talk about healing the divide, but nobody actually walking the walk.
    I follow lots of US bloggers and the people I rate highest are saying “they’re both as bad as each other”. I tend not to follow diehard Repeblicans at all, and tent to treat diehard Democrats with a pinch of salt. Time will tell, I guess, but those Trump supporters are not just going to melt away.
