Stop stirring in the pot of darkness

DEAR READER: Today is the anniversary of a dark day in our country.

Harriette Cole

On January 6, 2021, just as my family was about to celebrate my niece’s birthday, the ether was filled with scary images of Americans overtaking the Capitol of our beloved nation. It’s hard to believe that a whole year has passed since that fateful day.

We are used to hearing about civil unrest in other parts of the world. Although there have been many moments of death and destruction right here on our shores, we as a collective continue to somehow hold on to the belief that these bad things are happening somewhere else. Not so.

Unfortunately, politics has tarnished our national ability to sort through this horrific incident to find out who we should hold accountable and how we can move forward.

I have no interest in finding out the policy. I am writing to you now because I want each of us to think about our own actions and their consequences for our lives.

I wrote a book many years ago called “How To Be”. The point of this etiquette book was to help people understand how to exploit the essence of who they are and to understand what is expected of them on their path so that they can make smart, honest choices.
