This picture evokes in me both sadness and anger. Five lives lost, for what? Our flag so poignant, even the statue seems to be mourning a terrible day in America.
Sad, very sad indeed. Let's hope it doesn't mark the beginning of deterioration in the existence of this big nation.
It was a sad day for our country. One committed suicide, I guess he realized he should not have been involved with the attack on the capitol. I have to wonder about the capitol police taking selfies with these crazy people. I thought at least the police would be safe, didn't these extremist say they supported the police. Take care, enjoy your day!
Yes it was a very sad day. I hope and pray for things to improve for the USA.Hugs, Julia
Hi Inger - no comment from me ... just sad. I feel for you ... stay safe - Hilary
The enemy is within and I fear for us all.
I fear it is about to get worse
The sadness is almost unshakeable. I know the cooler heads out number the others but hate blocks all reason.
Inger, what is that statue? It does look like they are mourning, but it must be over a hundred years old.
I'm sorry but I don't know. I tried to find out, but with so many statues inside the Capitol, Google would not cooperate and search on the outside.
I hope that things will begin to settle down. The videos were frightening.
It was just awful to watch - you are all in our thoughts xx
So sad!!! Let's just hope this is the last of it.
A sad day indeed!!!
The whole world (at least not the Trump followers) mourn!
I'm afraid of what might happen all over the country on Jan. 20th.Love,Janie
it's frightening. any mob always is. but there is an amazing thing about those people...as if they have no regard for life itself. or values other than their own agenda.and now the leaders of them like Qanon or whatever that is... are calling for every capitol in the entire nation to be under siege by their followers. I think Sandra above may be right. and it's scary.
Yes, great sadness. I do not understand it. Not at all.
Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
