The NYC sojourn over, we drove on Thursday to Washington DC. We visited Mt. Vernon and paid respects to President Washington. We stopped by the Capitol, then drove over to visit Mr. Lincoln’s memorial.
My travel companion is from Malaysia. I’m not certain he understood the depth of emotional and spiritual impact this city has on some citizens, and the Lincoln Memorial in particular has on me.
