As Democrats and Republicans in Washington argue over the best way to end the government shutdown, The Washington Post has given Americans a tough reminder of the damage this situation is causing.

Through its website, The Post requested comments from readers about the shutdown. It asked if they were being affected -- and if they were, to what extent. It plotted their location on a map so you can see which areas of the country are feeling the most pain. And it also asked for their comments.

Spend a few minutes reading the words of those federal workers who are going without pay. The shutdown might start to look a little different to you.
