Felicia Konold of Arizona was on a road trip celebrating being alive after a bad accident left her with a broken back and half of her face ripped off in 2020.
Konold had never travelled before, so for the first time in her life she has been taking road trips through the country that she loves so dearly with her brother — while also homeschooling her 10-year-old son.
When Konold heard that President Donald Trump was going to be speaking in DC, the siblings decided to add a stop to their road trip plan. She had never been to a protest before and did not really know what to expect — in fact, she did not even expect it to be a protest, just a rally. What she did know is that patriotic Americans who loved their president were not often treated kindly, and that she had a little boy that needed her. She packed a medical kit and bought some extra protective layers to make sure she would get home safe, should leftists attack the event.
She also hoped that by bringing supplies, her training for veterinary medicine may come in handy if things went terribly awry.
