Only In America
1/14/2021, 6 p.m.
Only in America could you in one day be egged on by the president of this country to disrupt the judicial process of this land and breech the U.S. Capitol — an icon of our democracy — to destroy property, to upset and scare our lawmakers and to take down the very symbol upon which we all have pledged and adopted — the American flag.
The gut shot, the dagger in the heart, was that after the breech, after the scaring, after the destruction of property, you brought into our Capitol your foreign confederate flag! And you were allowed to return home safely?
For today, drain the colors from the American flag and fly it a ghostly white.
