On November 4, 2015, Temple University's YAL Chapter held a Visualize the Debt event! A few weeks prior, I made a trip home to visit family. Due to the space constraints of living in Philadelphia, I decided to build the debt clock at home and drive it back to school. To gather the materials, I made a trip to Home Depot to get plywood, paint, and other necessary items. I realized I had severely underestimated how heavy all the plywood would be, but thankfully a few guys that worked at Home Depot helped me get it all into my car!
When I arrived at home, I realized that building at 40' debt clock was a massive task, so I asked my step-dad, Jim, for help. Thankfully, he agreed and helped me paint and assemble the gigantic clock. I couldn't have done it without him! Once we were finished, he helped me get it back into my car, and I drove it back to school.
