Sentimental Sunday

It's been a while since I've posted a Sentimental Sunday. After I posted about seeing the gravestones of Revolutionary War veterans, Sharon of Gamma Sharon's Life left a comment mentioning the WWII memorial in Washington DC. That got me thinking about my visit to DC a few years ago when I had an opportunity to see that memorial for the first time. I was really impressed by it and it quickly became my favorite of all the DC memorial/monuments. I love that it is a public space that people can visit and spend time exploring or just sit in quiet reflection. The impact of this memorial was, for me, much more intense than that of other memorials/monuments. So, thanks to Sharon for inspiring me to post these pictures.

I love DC. I lived between DC and Baltimore for a year and my roommates and I always went to Baltimore on Saturday and DC on Sunday. Good times. Thanks for bringing that back a little bit.

Nice pics!!!

I haven't been to DC since the WWII and Vietnam memorials were built. That's on my list of things to see. We did visit a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Wall a few years ago when it was nearby, very moving. I did a rubbing of my cousin Alan's name.
