OPINION: Democracy is more robust than you may think: my reflections about the storming of the U.S. Capitol

January 6 was a day to celebrate. It's the day for Congress to count the electoral votes from the last Presidential Election. It's mainly ceremonial as the general public already knows who is declared the victor. There was bound to be outrage across the country, with the far-right claiming the election was fraudulently conducted. However, nothing could prepare me for the sheer violence and brutality that the country faced in the hours to come.
