Meanwhile Congress was still in session over the government budget. The U.S. Capitol went into full LOCKDOWN mode until the threat was resolved. Miriam Carey was a 34 dental hygienist from Stamford, Connecticut. Sources say she may have suffered from a mental illness. Although I don't know or think thats true, but I'm not sure guess the news will tell it all. The 1 year old was not hurt, physically but I'm sure mentally she's not doing too well.
This is tragic. People are assuming this has something to do with the Government Shutdown. However no one knows for sure why this woman did this or what she was trying to do. This is just sad and I hope that while Congress is arguing over money, more people don't die. Even if this was about this persons mental health then this is just a testament to how mental health is not important or even considered a strong problem in the United States. It needs to be apart of a normal healthcare insurance and instead of a separate insurance of its own. It needs to be addressed from birth to death. When you get a physical you should also get a mental evaluation. It needs to be protocol. But, if this was about the shutdown I fear whats going to happen next. People are dying left and right, I hope the Congress comes to an agreement soon, before the 15th of October!
