“there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” – maya angelou

Standard

dried human tears (Smithsonianmag.com)

watching the january 6th capitol hill hearing

 the most compelling, wrenching, and heartfelt testimony

i have ever witnessed

 raw pain

anger

hurt

 disappointment

honesty

trauma

bravery

humanity

shock

duty

courage

heroism

scars

strength

loyalty

overwhelming emotions

unanswered questions

not one person immune from tears

i could not take my eyes off of them

and I am forever changed

 questions must be answered and justice served

never to happen again.

“that’s the thing about pain, it demands to be felt.” – john green
