Today has been a horrific day for the United States. I don’t even know if I have the wording to describe what I feel right now. On 9/11 my husband was coming back from PT and we were stationed at fort Irwin, California at the time . I remember the surrealness of seeing the planes hit the Twin Towers and I remember the feeling of anguish.
Today, as I watched Trump herd a group of people to the Capitol, I couldn’t help but feel like I was watching 9/11 all over again. It was dreamlike. After I heard him talk about marching the protesters down to the Capitol, I told my husband, oh my God babe he just said he was going to march the protesters down to the Capitol.
You know, some years ago I wrote an article about how Trump would bring us very close to destruction and then I deleted it because I felt bad about it. I didn’t want to be too hard on him. I was probably like a lot of other Americans who went back and forth on Trump. There were moments I thought he resembled goodness, and then there were other moments when you could tell that the goodness was a mask.
I think perhaps that’s the problem with his supporters today. They’ve never understood that there are different layers to him, and if you have to continually peel back layers it means a person is not authentic.
Anyways, I don’t quite know how to explain the urgency, and I don’t know maybe even urgency, isn’t the right word. I don’t think people understand the enormity of the situation when it comes to damage Trump can still do. Only God can protect us now
Now we learn four people have died because of his rhetoric. People died on 9/11 because they tried to stop places like the Capitol or the White House from being attacked. Yet, President Trump attacked the very heart of our country. He did something the terrorists couldn’t even do, he struck our heart and I don’t know how anyone can make that right in their minds.
