You and your friends went to the oh so very trendy neighborhood of Adams Morgan in Washington DC last night , but you all aren’t too tired to visit more of Washington’s monuments and memorials .
You saw the Korean War Memorial , which was very haunting and spooky to you.
You wonder did the designer mean for it to be this way ?
After you saw the Vietnam War Memorial , “The Wall”, you had to sit down on a bench to compose yourself .
One of the names on the wall was the cousin that you were named after .
Not far from the wall is another symbol of Washington’s memorials , The Lincoln Memorial .
You didn’t want to see this Memorial at night, even though you heard how beautiful it is .
Nor did you all want to go in the late afternoon when it would be really crowded.
Instead , you all got to the memorial around 7:30am.
As you stand at the top of the stairs , you not only can see the Reflecting Pool, but the National World War 2 Memorial and of course , the Washington Monument .
You don’t need any exercise because just walking up and down the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial was exercise enough .
When you all finally get inside the building , not only do you see
a copy of The Gettysburg Address , but the famous larger than life statue of the president , sitting in a chair .
How majestic he looks!
You all can’t help but wonder as you leave the memorial , what was on his mind as the country was going through the Civil War ?
