While under seize by a crazed, anarchist mob, American patriots (who were part of the US government and in danger themselves), secured & protected the boxes holding the electoral college ballots. They did their best to keep democracy alive.
The above scene - with members of Congress being in fear of their lives - is hard for any true American patriot to view and not feel a sadness in their heart. It is also one to be proud of with Americans (both some members of Congress and their aides) doing their best to try to protect this symbol of a free & fair democratic election.
