You’ve reached the United States Government. We’re closed right now. If you receive this message during regular working hours, it means that we were not funded. Please try your call later. Thank you.
It’s the lead story on the news, it’s the end of life as we know it! (Details at eleven) And, of course, it’s someone else’s fault.
What will we do? What will we do?
Unless God wills otherwise, tomorrow, the sun will come up.
Most of those with a job will go to work. Children will go to school.
People will eat and sleep. Children will play at recess. Babies will be born. And yes, someone’s grandpa may die.
So what will be different?
If you were planning a luxurious trip to some exotic island, your passport may be delayed.
Your government grant for studying the nocturnal feeding habits of black footed ferrets in the high plains won’t be funded just yet.
Our lives will go on.
And maybe some people will realize that the politicians are neither as important nor as powerful as they’d have us believe.
On the other hand, God is.
