The Island Now

The attack on our nation’s Capitol Building in Washington, by evil insurgents I found most appalling on Jan. 6.

These nefarious and egregious acts were treason in my opinion.

Furthermore, these attacks were an attack upon the very fiber of democracy upon which our great nation was founded upon.

This truly was a day of infamy, a day that will never be forgotten. These evil-doers did not win and freedom and democracy did prevail. As Sen. Chuck Schumer said these extremists must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Well, I totally agree. I myself served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War and am proud of what this country stands for and that is freedom for all.

That includes the right to protest but not to engage in acts of violence. Democracy must be defended against those who wish to destroy it. Remember this: Evil thrives when good people do nothing!
