Response to this Week’s Events in Washington DC

“The events that unfolded in Washington DC on Wednesday, January 6 were some of the darkest moments in our nation’s history.  While the First Amendment provides for freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances, it does not allow for mob rule, violence, or the overthrow of our democratic process.  We must continue the history of a peaceful transfer of power in our country and ask all of our elected officials to focus on healing our great nation.”
