I have flown over it and driven around it, but after all these years of being back east this is the first time that I have ever been to D.C. We went with Mike and family, twice actually, over the Thanksgiving weekend. It was truly awe inspiring and humbling when you think where we've come from. My favorite was probably the Lincoln Memorial, it really lifts the spirits. The architecture is magnificent and one really does feel that they are at the center of the universe. The war memorials were powerful in their message, the Viet Nam memorial was overwhelming.
It was nice to be with family in a place that gives you great hope that we can overcome our shortfalls and become strong and independent again.
Love to all.
