January 6, 2021

I had a cute blog scheduled for this week.  But I am not feeling cute or funny.

Wednesday, January 6, 2021, is a day of infamy.  A  sad date etched into our memories—another, “Where were you when…” date. The headline: Americans storm the Capitol Building.

WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 06: U.S. President Donald Trump is seen on a screen as his supporters cheer during a rally on the National Mall on January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC.

I was not political before 2016.  Embarrassingly, I barely paid attention.  I remember when I first had dinner at Mitch’s family’s home in 1976.  The theme of the conversation was Politics and I had NOTHING to add.  Zilch, Void, NADA! I was inwardly disappointed in myself but not enough to become more knowledgeable in world events.

It’s Impossible to Avoid

But who can avoid politics now? Certainly, not me.  My Dad and I compare our weekly New York Time Current Event Quiz points? I can answer the political questions! Who am I?

Today, young people are engaged in our country’s government.  It would be impossible for 21-year-old me to have nothing to say in 2021.  It was a luxury in 1976.

I awoke at 5 AM on Thursday, January 7, 2021.  Sleep was over and thoughts of yesterday loomed.  I glanced at Facebook but that only made me feel worse.

People are angry, hurt, sad, devastated, outraged, incredulous, mournful, and every other emotion that describes the day.  On this, Red or Blue, most of us are united.


Whether you agree with the results of the election or not. Please consider supporting a smooth transition for the sake of unity, peace, growth, and our children/grandchildren. 

For the first day in a long time, I missed doom and gloom reports about Covid-19.  I long for the me who had other things on her mind besides politics. And I miss our United States.

January 6 2021 – From This Day On Let’s Agree To Do Better

We can get it together, if not for us, then for the younger generation.  We need to do better than this.  Please…

    I lay the blame totally on the group of spineless, gutless republican senators. They were given the chance to impeach and expel this known extortionist and criminal from continuing to damage our country, but were cowed into supporting him.
    Now they and we are paying the price. Maybe they’re now waking up, but the “train has left”.
    Sadly, if no immediate action is taken by congress, he’ll still have another 14 days to do damage.
    Our president:, too small a brain with too much power.
