You wake excited to gather your family and head to the airport. It’s the day before Christmas Eve, and you’re about to travel across the country to meet loved ones not seen since the previous year. You leave the house with plenty of time to spare. Everything’s going according to plan. Then you get to the airport.
It’s jammed, not with fellow travelers, but with political protesters engaged in an unauthorized demonstration. “No justice! No peace!” they shout, holding aloft signs reading “Black Lives Matter.” You soon realize that the crowd of agitators has overwhelmed law enforcement. The protesters bar your access to the airport. You miss your flight.
