PM: 6 miles at Liberty Park. Feeling a little stressed at the attempted coup in Washington. Today, mobs of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. capitol in pursuit of some goal that is impossible to understand if you love the United States. Usually a run helps but today it didn't.
I've been teaching American history for 25 years and I served in the Army for 14 years. I've always believed in this country and tried to teach its history as a story of progress. Sometimes that progress comes excruciatingly slow but it comes. I'm not so sure about that anymore.
