Government Shutdown

I keep hearing a lot about this, from every side of the political spectrum. I have so many friends who's families are being affected by this. Layoffs, furloughs and more. It is especially scary for those that have family in the military, deployed over seas.

It seems that Congress is having one big temper tantrum. Like a bunch of kindergartners fighting over toys in the sandbox on the playground. If one cannot get their way, then every one suffers.

Only this isn't a sandbox, it is our country! While Congress is shut down and getting paid, there are hundreds, possibly THOUSANDS, of families wondering where their next paycheck will come from, if it comes at all.

It is not only these families not having money to feed their families that bothers me...it is the fact that I see there are some other programs being put on hold including WIC in some places, food stamps and, from what I hear last night, some cancer treatment centers!

And I just now, as I was writing this, heard about THIS happening in Washington. A shooter on Capital Hill!

I truly fear for the future of this country, and what my children will have to grow up in.

I certainly hope this tantrum is over soon and we can get back to being the UNITED STATES of America.
