“What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? No martyr’s cause has ever been stilled by an assassin’s bullet. No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled or uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people.”

                                                            Robert F. Kennedy

“Those who vote and respect the will of the people  in elections are true patriots; those who riot and perform acts of sedition are traitors, as are those who support the insurrectionists.”

                                                           Charles F. French

  1. Some are saying we should let this heinous act pass and work on unity. Unity is essential but we must take a stand against anarchy and those who would destroy our democracy. Trump must never be allowed to hold public office again.
