The View from Here

View of DC

We spent our afternoon Sunday at the Arlington National Cemetery, and I thought this view was striking.  All the headstones, in perfect military formation, laid out before the monuments of Washington, DC.  It's a quiet, solemn place, full of history and honor and grief and pride.


The grounds are beautiful - the flowers and trees maintained with a level of attention appropriate to these hallowed grounds.


Regardless of your political views, you can't help but be moved by the sacrifice, throughout this country's history, represented in this cemetery.

Thank you.
