Hello, my name is Julian Villasenor. I am 14 years old, and even if i am not directly effected, i know people who are. I personally know quite a few people who needed medicine and I have relatives who worked in the army, and sadly, they have lost some benefits. I go to stores, and see people effected, and I also know if I walk down the street, I can see people like me being effected, and that is sad. My message to the government is think of everyone else. Not to put anyone out there, but I feel sad that people need help, and even though the government shut down, their issues didn't. They didn't shut down. They want dinner, and need help, help that the government was supposed to provide. I hope that the shutdown is brief, so the rest of us can sleep at night knowing the country is a step closer to happiness. I also feel we are exposed to other countries who speak about our government negative! Please America, we need to stand up, shake it off, and keep going, because I know we can do it.
