Of all of the monuments in Washington that
we saw, I found the
Lincoln Memorial, by far, the most awe inspiring. I thought it magnificent that Lincoln sits with his eyes fixed out across the
reflecting pool towards the
Washington Monument and beyond across the commons to
the capitol (the three structures sit in a straight line).
The unknown soldiers are positioned to
watch as civilians file by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial
Memorial is a somber
place. Thousands of names carved into its reflective surface. One arm pointing
to the Washington Mem. and the other to the Lincoln Mem.
