Twelve score and five years ago our fathers created our nation under the proposition that all men are created equal. January 6th will live as a day in infamy as to how fragile the ideal of democracy is. The insurrection arose as political rhetoric divided brother against brother with the undertow of systemic racism, which still tugs at our social fabric. How can we continue to survive and thrive as a beacon of democracy to the world while we amplify and exacerbate the seeds of division within our own glass house?
The world will forever remember the vivid images of the abomination of the desolation of the sacred chamber of democracy. The enemy is within and we must redouble our efforts to ensure that we remain one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.
