A couple of weeks ago Betsy and I were up in DC and took a long walk. Historic monuments were all around us. We left the hotel and large buildings with reflective skins. The first thing of note we saw was a passageway with a large, granite sphere appearing to be suspended in it. Then we reached the monument of Marines raising the flag. This lies next to Arlington National Cemetery were we spent a long time. Then we crossed the bridge to The Lincoln Memorial and had lunch before going to the Korean War Veterans Memorial. Following this we viewed the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial before walking around the Tidal Basin to The Thomas Jefferson Memorial.
On a beautiful day, low humidity, cool, and lots of sun, there is much to enjoy here. We should take time to think about our history as we move forward and remember those who sacrificed so much for our country.
