I spent the morning huddled with my loved ones, weeping quietly. Venturing to work - trekking through the howling, government-free wilderness - left me drained and numb. I wonder why I bothered, as I am completely unable to concentrate. My mind is continually drawn back to contemplate the horror of a country in which the national parks are now closed. Based on the news reports I am seeing, I expect that I will have to resort to cannibalism in order to survive the day.
