Readers-mine, there are terms being thrown around that many people do not truly understand. Some of the tweets, posts, and comments I'm reading online make me want to teach people how to use a dictionary, so I'm going to use this post to define those words in hopes of creating a clearer conversation. I am pulling all legal definitions from Cornell Law School's Legal Information Institute.
This has been a tough week, readers-mine. You'll have to pardon the fact that I am a few days late as we had a family emergency, I was dealing with Turtle's birthday and memory sharing, and I'm still in recovery from surgery. So, between the personal stuff and the national stuff, it's been quite the week to process. That said, it was shocking watching the Capitol be desecrated, but it was not surprising. For those who are from another country or were living under a rock for the past week in the U.S. for whatever reason, go here, here, and here for a rundown of events.
