REDDING, Calif. – On top of dealing with the raging pandemic and just nine days out from President-Elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, the country facing a dangerous divide.

Despite everything happening in the nation, people in the Redding community tell Action News Now they are feeling okay. But what they want to see is a more united country.

For Julie Holloway, a long-time Redding resident, tells Action News Now that she feels safe. Holloway expressed that she felt confident in her community.

But Holloway says she’s more worried about what could happen in bigger cities.

“I feel okay in Redding. But as far as bigger cities and their Capitol buildings and things of that nature, I would be a little bit more concerned,” said Holloway.

“I think I have a little bit more confidence in the people Redding.”

Meanwhile, Curtis Smith of Redding, says while he sees what’s happening across the country he hasn’t experienced any of the tension.

But with 11 days into this New Year, both Smith and Holloway tell Action News Now despite political differences people should strive to come together.

“I think what's important going into 2021--what we learned in 2020 and the vision that we got from 2020-- is the understanding that there is a conflict, there is tension, and that there are differences. Do we allow those differences to keep separating us or do we come together,” said Smith.

“If we don't learn and use the vision from 2020 going into 2021, it will continue to destroy us.”

But one person told Action News Now with everything going on and the high tension that they are seeing, they are a little worried and concerned.

But the Redding Police Department says that there are not seeing any signs of civil unrest. But it is something are continuing to keep a close eye on.
