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.
