We walked down to the Korean Memorial,
I remember this one from school.
SPEAKING OF SCHOOLS...
GOOD. LORD.There were so many middle and high school kids.
C'est la vie.
|They were still haunting..|
Mike and I both agreed that this was an important thing to see.
At every age, but you dont really "get" it, until you grow up a bit.
After we left, we followed the path towards the Lincoln Memorial.
It's just as amazing as I remember.
|I know you!|
And the view across the mall..is gorgeous.
We walked over to the Vietnam Memorial afterwards.
This was definitely one of the memorials that made my heart ache.You see the names and hear stories when you're 12, but they dont really mean anything.
I guess it doesn't mean as much to me as it does to someone who lost a loved one.
But, it's important to be aware of.
|wall of names|
|dedicated to the women who helped|
After that, we wandered just a bit around the mall and found a little gift shop.
Mike decided to recite some of Lincoln's speeches.
