Recently, my daughter and I visited Washington, DC. I had not been to DC since 1983 when I was part of Presidential Classroom. DC still has a beautiful charm in the Spring and we were fortunate to have nice weather during the days there. The buildings in some cases like the White House felt smaller for some reason probably as I see them from a different perspective now.
The Iwo Jima Memorial which was near our hotel was still incredible. The scale of the sculpture is overwhelming.
The most emotional moment was seeing the wreath being delivered by a family at the tomb of the unknown soldier. The playing of “Taps” gave the ceremony so much more significance.
