I will be hard pressed to focus on only five of my favorite things of this week. Spending a whole week in Washington DC has certainly been a highlight of my life.
1. I love the way I saw the White House for the first time in my life. I was walking down the street with my sister. We were finding our way to the Lincoln Memorial. Not realizing where I was, I was just walking along. I happened to glance over to my right and there She was in all her splendor! It took my breath away. “The White House!” were the only words I could manage. I was so in awe that I totally didn’t even think to take a single picture!
2. I have run into several young people, either working or visiting the national sites and I have been so impressed with them. Young kids visiting the Supreme Court asked very intelligent questions. Other young people told me that they were visiting because they felt it was important to stay informed. It gives me such hope for the future knowing we have young people like this.
3. I loved the metro. How fun to get to so many places in such a short amount of time. Riding with students, residents, visitors, and employees made it all so interesting. I have never seen so many men wearing black trench coats using their Blackberries!
4. Spending time with my sister. We both have busy lives and families of our own. It’s been so nice to just get away and reconnect as sisters.
5. ROOM SERVICE!
