Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: INSURRECTION

, , Leave a comment

On Jan. 6, a mob of supporters of then President Donald Trump seeking to overturn his defeat attacked the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., killing five people, vandalizing the Capitol, and looting House chambers. The siege was the most severe assault on the U.S. Constitution since the South seceded from the Union precipitating the Civil War. And, as the House Committee expands its investigation, it is finding that the attempted coup was orchestrated within the highest levels of government. On that day, our precious way of life – the democracy we hold so dear – came preciously close to collapse. It is a day we must never forget.
