Sorry for the delay in posting, but I have just returned from a very lengthy vacation from Washington, D.C.
If you haven't been there lately (or ever), you should consider doing so soon. We were able to visit all three branches of government (a tour of the Capitol (thanks Congressman Knollenberg), a tour of the White House, and I heard the oral delivery of opinions by the Supreme Court). The Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, the National Archives, Library of Congress, Holocaust Museum, WW II Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Marines' and Navy's Memorials, Georgetown, etc. are all inspiring in their own ways.
Although there is much wrong with America today, revisiting D.C. certainly can renew one's energy and lift one's spirit, and give us hope for the future.
Being able to view firsthand originals of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and Madison's Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments was awe inspiring. As was our visit to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
