(RepublicanDaily.org) – The events that took place in Washington, DC last Wednesday shocked the nation. Damage occurred to some of the most important government buildings we have and, tragically, several lives were lost.
On Monday, January 11, First Lady Melania Trump released a statement detailing her reaction to the events that unfolded at the Capitol Building. She condemned the actions of those involved in storming the government chambers, stating “violence is never acceptable.”

She also took the opportunity to denounce the “gossip,” “personal attacks,” and “misleading accusations” that had come her way in the wake of the protest. She reminded readers that “this time is solely about healing our country and its citizens.”
The first lady went on to discuss the pandemic and the natural disasters America faced in 2020. She expressed her hope that the country would find “healing, grace, understanding, and peace” in the months and years ahead.
As ugly as the scenes at the Capitol Building were, they’re only the tip of a much larger iceberg. Our nation is as polarized as it has ever been, with aggressive and inflammatory rhetoric becoming the norm. Melania Trump is to be applauded for her efforts to inject some civility into this conversation.
