I am ashamed of what is going on in our country right now.

Last Wednesday I was saddened to hear of the protests and riots that invaded our nation’s capitol. But what is really sad, is that I wasn’t all that shocked. After everything that has happened this year, nothing surprises me anymore.

I wholeheartedly agree with the First Amendment of our Constitution. Every single American is entitled to free speech and has the right to gather in peaceful protest to show support or opposition. My job revolves around the first amendment – freedom of speech is very important to me. It’s what makes America great – each and every one of us enjoys those freedoms simply because we are Americans.

As I said, when I heard the news, I wasn’t even all that shocked. So, why am I so ashamed of our country right now?
