Statement by President McKay on the Unfolding Events at the Capitol Building on January 6th, 2021

January 6th, 2021

For those watching the television and keeping track of what’s happening at the Capitol Building, please keep calm and keep the faith. Our country’s form of self-government is a fragile experiment, the boundaries of which are certainly being tested today.

It’s okay to be scared, but remember that things will be okay.

Our country has seen and survived dark days before, and it will do so again. This too shall pass, and the American experiment will carry on.

If you need someone to speak to in the coming days about the stress and anxiety about this time, please let me or a friend know—and if you’re that friend, please lend a listening and supportive ear.
