The Government Shutdown
It came unexpectedly after businesses had already closed. The announcement happened at night, but the chatters of differing opinions of what would happen or why it happened were ablaze.

“Did you watch the movie Purge?” “Will the law enforcement still be working?”
Such hyperbolic sentiments were fun to entertain. But assessing the situation as citizens looking on from the outskirts, clear perspective was needed.
