This summer we were able to go to DC.
The Lincoln Memorial had to be my favorite stop.
It was amazing to me that even though there were many people there,
everyone was silent.
The words inscribed on the walls of marble were read by most of us there.
It was so inspiring and I think everyone there left with a new appreciation for
this man, Abraham Lincoln.
The carving is truly magnificent.
It took four years to complete the statue.
On the first floor, below the statue, there is a small museum with videos,
photographs, and the history of this time in our country.
Keep in mind that the statue is 19 feet high.
This is one of the side hallways.
The Washington Monument and the Capitol Building are seen in the distance.
Abraham Lincoln has always been one of my favorite historical figures.
His speeches and writings are filled with a timeless sense of integrity,
honesty, and patriotism.
Visiting this memorial was a special day I won’t soon forget!
Have a wonderful, blessed week!
