As we come upon the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection, I’ve found myself reflecting on the events of that day.

I remember where I was as I watched in horror as domestic terrorists stormed the Capitol. I wondered how I would explain to my daughter what was happening. I wondered if those people understood what they were doing to us.

Most importantly, I wondered if my country would ever be the same. A year later, we still don’t know.

America is at a crossroads. If the conspirators behind the coup attempt go without consequences, it will happen again. And then we’re on our way to being just another country where power is transferred by bloodshed and not elections.

That’s not the nation I proudly served in uniform, and I know it’s not the nation my friends and neighbors are proud to be citizens of.

Sedition is a crime. An orchestrated insurrection is an even greater crime, and those responsible for both must be held accountable. If 2021 was a year of violence and chaos, we must make 2022 a year of political reckoning for the traitors who sparked it, whether in a court of law or at the ballot box.

I’m running against Jim Jordan to do my part. I’m calling on everyone who’s an American first, before they’re a member of any political party, to do theirs too.
