Washington D.C. day 3

  • Once upon a time a girl and her guy traveled to the land of the political conflicted and instead of seeing a bunch of uptight people in suits they saw the glory of what was Washington D.C.- The National Mall (new for me this year,) The Arlington Cemetery (2 years in a row,) A lonely fox wandering down the street behind the Arlington house- Really, the Robert E. Lee Memorial- what do you think about Robert E. Lee being related to Martha Washington?  Kind of hypocrisy of opposing view don’t you think?

Arlington, like the day  gave us a bitter reminder that in the life of a Soldier there is the ultimate sacrifice and that they really do what 1 John 3:16 says, “Hereby perceive we the love [of God], because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down [our] lives for the brethren.”
Quietly on our tram ride the passengers silently gave thanks for those how are protecting our rights as Americans. Thank you to all those who give up their time to save ours!

At the end this is what we saw- what a startling contrast to all the urban.
