I wasn’t there. I was still in DC finishing an internship. I woke up on Saturday feeling tense and nervous. As soon as I pulled up the news on my phone and saw the footage of the torch-lit rally and attack at the Rotunda Friday night, I knew I should have been there to help defend my community and values. Instead, I could only watch in frustration and horror as the images and videos streamed in.
