In light of the horrifying events that unfolded at the Capitol yesterday, January 6th, Community Teamwork would like to thank our Members of Congress for the courage and fortitude they demonstrated in the wake of the danger they faced. Their actions confirmed that democracy will not be intimidated or altered through domestic terrorism.
The security of the Capitol has not been breached in over 200 years. Yesterday's video footage, showing protestors storming the Capitol with Confederate flags, was difficult to watch. In our society, there is no room for violence, destruction and racism.
We wholeheartedly condemn the actions of these people and remain so appreciative of our lawmakers. They upheld the rule of law and our right as voters to choose our elected leaders and representatives. Despite the domestic terrorism they faced, legislators returned to fulfill their duties to certify President-Elect Joe Biden's electoral victory, which took them into the early hours of the morning.
We should never forget what we witnessed yesterday and be ever more vigilant to save and preserve our democracy.
