As bad as the news on Coronavirus ravaging the country, hard to believe something else could supersede it. Well something did.
Calling it “a sad day in America,” our degenerative, polarized political free-for-all behaviors got to an ugly outcome this past Wednesday. Mobs breaching into the US Capital marauded the most sacred chambers of our Democracy.
Moreover, 5 people died as a result. Lawmakers, staffs, reporters, and a score of government officials had their lives threatened for doing their jobs. Incredibly, this mayhem was incited by none other than our president, Donald J. Trump.
Mr. Trump reminds me of the proverbial saying ‘power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ The outcry from the tragic event this week on Capital Hill forces him to acknowledge his defeat in the November election after denying it for 8 weeks.
Talking about lessons learned, I believe that no one should demand loyalty and separation of powers are prudent principles for the future administrations. Finally I leave you with an inspirational video by Arnold Schwarzenegger about this past Wednesday.
Stay safe & Have a nice week.
