Check the news and reflect

January 6, 2022

It’s like time has stopped. We were a nation divided, and well, we’re still a nation divided. Everything has become political. Threats and accusations are thrown left and right. From vaccinations, to masking, to public policy there is no consensus. Mistrust floats in the air just as infectious as Omicron itself.

Right now in the news, there’s still a lot to be uncovered. Depending on what news site you go to, there is different information, misinformation- the thing that some people say was a factor of the insurrection. Social media and the online web, where we get our news, is where the planning of the insurrection occurred. Today as many commemorative events are being held, many Republicans are not present at the Capitol.

However as much as we are a nation divided, the violence we saw at the Capitol represents a smaller portion of the population than we may think. It’s still not okay that people believe violence was an answer, but we can’t assume that everyone who holds an opposing view as us is as horrible as a rioter.
