10 amazing acts of kindness during the government shutdown
Chris Cox, from South Carolina, was telling Washington’s All-News 99.1 why he put his life on hold to mow the lawns and tend the grounds of the Lincoln and World War II memorials in the midst of the government shutdown, now nearing its third week.
“The building behind me serves as a moral compass, not only for our country but for the world,” Cox told the Washington Post. “And over my dead body are we going to find trash pouring out of these trash cans. At the end of the day, we are the stewards of these buildings that are memorials.”
