Indictments would be a good way to honor the one year anniversary of the insurrection

One year ago today. Three hundred sixty-five days.

Today is the first anniversary of the insurrection at the United States Capitol building. “Patriots” stormed the building to try to subvert the will of the American people. They unsuccessfully tried to overturn a presidential election. They unsuccessfully tried to overturn our democracy that began in 1776.

Only because of the actions of a handful of men and women did all of the above fail.

It isn’t mentioned enough but people died as a result of these actions last January 6th. Who is being held responsible for these deaths? As of today, no one. More than seven hundred people have been charged for their actions but nothing about the deaths. WHY NOT?!

We need consequences for those involved in the events of that day. Not only those who stormed the Capitol but those whose actions set the event in motion. Those who egged on the rioters to head over to the Capitol.

Yes, of course I know there’s a House of Representatives select committee investigation working on this. WORK FASTER! Yes, I saw the Merrick Garland speech promising that the Justice Department is working to make sure everyone involved will be prosecuted. WORK FASTER!

So on this insurrection anniversary, a good way to honor those affected by what happened a year ago would be with some indictments, the higher up the better. What could be a better way to get past that day. What could be a better way to move forward.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
