"I do want to say thank you to the members of the public that have been weighing in, to colleagues and people who work in the Capitol Hill on campus," @Grace4NY said. "People have been so encouraging and have offered words of comfort and it has been tremendously helpful."
"Another part is metal detectors were installed on the outside of the chambers... Just a few Republicans were so rude to the Capitol Police officers who literally have been protecting us and haven't taken a day off since Wednesday. So that has contributed to the tension."
"It's very tense in the Capitol, and it's not just because of what happened on Jan. 6, it's also because the members who were on the floor together... they were all locked down in one room for hours... and there were multiple members not wearing masks and refusing to wear masks."
"Originally I thought I would be OK because I assumed the Capitol police would just come and get me and extract me," @Grace4NY said. "But I was watching all this on TV and realized that there was no one coming to get me, and that's when I started to put up the barricade."
