Seeing History Happen
As I stood there reading the unbelievable words, the thought crossed my mind, "This is history. I am experiencing history. I probably won't have this happen again."
I was eighteen years old. I was young and naive.
And now, so many years later, I've been witness to many historical events, both good and bad: The Vietnam War, the other wars, the moon landing, Hillary's nomination, Barak's election, legalized abortion, legalized gay marriage, the elections of several Popes, the resignation of a U.S. President, come to mind*. And then there was what happened today: Incited by the President of the United States, rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to overthrow the election of the next President. The graphics spot at the top of the post is blank; I'm not about to give these thugs any more recognition.
Two more weeks, people. Two more weeks.
