Take a few minutes and see this amazing statue to an amazing man. It is so much grander than you think. But it doesn’t take long, you can see everything in 15 minutes.

We got to memorial and it was covered in snow. I loved the quiet and peace of it all. The history behind the memorial just makes it all so beautiful.

It is impossible to fully describe your feelings as you look up at this towering presence in the history of our country. Patriotism, sadness, pride, and satisfaction that he was in office during our most divisive and devastating period in our country's history.

It is. But D.C. is worth spending more time in. If you also want to visit some of the museums, you should plan for some days. Enjoy your stay. It is a nice city. :)
