A note from Jay Dettling, Ansira Chief Executive Officer:
The violence that took place at our nation’s capital this week was both shocking and saddening. The threat and lack of respect shown to our democratic process by the mob of protestors is not a true reflection of who we are as Americans. Our country was founded on democracy, but this week we were shown its fragility and how easily it can be compromised. I have the utmost faith in our democratic system and know that great beauty lies in being able to have our voices heard through our vote.
We have learned so much in the past year. What stands out to me is how we have taken a step back to see how we must improve ourselves in order to improve our world. At a moment when we are all searching for stability, we must push past this week’s atrocious events to rise together as a unified country. We are always stronger together.
