The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
Last week I designated “hope” as The Who Won the Week winner. I may have been premature or a bit naïve to think that, just because we turned the page to a new year, anything would change in Donald Trump’s America.
This week we saw that it was domestic terrorism that “won” the week, when a horde of Trump supporters, spurred on by the sitting Presidential of the United States himself, stormed the U.S. Capitol building in what was an act of insurrection against America. The whole world watched Wednesday’s events in horror as the unthinkable was occurring right before our eyes.
It’s just 10 days before the inauguration of Joe Biden and instead of being filled with hope, I am filled with anxiety as I see headlines like these on my iPhone’s screen.I worry that horrific scenes like those we saw in Washington, DC on Wednesday will be repeated not only in our nation’s capital, but at state houses all across the country.
Why isn’t Donald Trump calling for his fanatical mad dogs to stand down? Because he lives for this. He loves this. And even when he is no longer sitting in the Oval Office, he will continue to sow the flames of insurrection among his rabid, mindless supporters.
This is truly an American tragedy.
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
