Sarah Ramadan, of Kuwait, poses for a photo under the Statue of Liberty in New York, on April 6. As talks to avoid a government showdown continue in Washington, the White House sought to put the prospect of a shutdown in terms people would care about, warning even that the beloved National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in the nation's capital would be wiped out.
