Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol Riot

Andrew Harnik, Associated Press, United States of America

Members of Congress found themselves down on their hands and knees sheltering in the House Chamber as a violent mob loyal to President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol disrupting the certification of the Electoral College for Joe Biden as the next President of the United States. Glass shattered and guns were drawn in a stunning, surreal and terrifying moment of history. For those of us who were there that day, and many watching across the country and the world, we have all been changed forever by the experience.
