Washington DC., a modern capital designed with meaning in
mind. All elements including; the location of key buildings in reference to each
other, the monuments, inscriptions and carvings, have been designed to work
together to reinforce the message of democracy.
If you are looking for a way to hit the
"reset" button on your impression of what America is, or what it was
be, visit Washington. The founding fathers' intentions were clear and relatively
simple. It was a reminder to me that the constitution is still a clear and
strong beacon to steer ourselves by.....even in these "foggy" times.
As we expected, there was not as much
access to things as there was before Sept 11, 2001
Oh...and did we mention that we ran
into Jesus while we were there. He seems to have set up a permanent "post"
at the capitol....
