A year later, America remains split

January 6, 2022

One year later, so much has changed, yet so much has also stayed the same. President Biden has now held office for more than a year, and the country has remained a stable global power. COVID-19 cases continue to rise, and people get aggravated at the government and defy its authority. It brings me back to exactly one year ago today. Jan. 6, 2020. The day of the capital insurrection. While I honestly don’t remember much about this day, a few core memories stick out in my head. It was a cold day of distance learning. I was sitting in the leather reclining chair in the corner of my bedroom. When my older brother opened the door, I was sitting in some random class, bored out of my mind. He said, “you have to check out the news” before leaving. Confused, I opened up Instagram and saw roughly 25 posts highlighting what had happened. I was pretty shocked. I just felt it was a weird, unnecessary, and utterly random thing to happen. Looking back a year later, my confusion remains. The insurrection didn’t do anything in the long run and only brought more fear into America. As we leave that dark moment of American history in the past, I can only hope that the day of Jan. 6 is forgotten.
