The events of yesterday were horrifying.
My early life was spent on Capitol Hill working for our nation’s Congress, and it is a place I deeply love. Watching the Capitol Hill Police be overrun by a mob as they tried to shield the doors with their bodies brought me to tears. Receiving texts from friends and former colleagues to say they were “safe” or “sheltering in place” broke my heart.
Today is not a day for talking about fashion, especially on a blog where so much of the readership works on the Hill and in government. Today is a day to reflect on our political discourse and what actions our words can incite.
To my D.C. and Capitol Hill readers, I hope you are safe, even if you are shaken. Reach out for help if you need it. ❤️
There’s just really nothing else to say.
May God Bless America and help us heal our nation.
