Mom Viewing the Crown Jewels

And I quote, “Now that’s a lot of bling!”

Vacation in DC: Day 1

It was a sunny day, forecast to be the hottest of the week, so we decided to do most of the outdoor sightseeing this day. We hit the Smithsonian Castle, Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Vietnam War Memorial, Korean War Memorial, and the new WWII Memorial. Here are some photos and my favorite quotes from the sites visited:

Washington Monument

Fun fact: Lack of resources and the Civil War caused the construction of the Washington Monument to be put on hold. Once the war was over, a different type of marble was used, hence the change in color about 150 feet up the structure.

Jefferson Memorial

Jefferson Memorial - Religious FreedomAlmighty God hath created the mind free.

I know but one code of morality for men whether acting singly or collectively.

Heard a cool quote tonight by Mother Teresa reflecting on a familiar passage:

At the end of our lives, we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made or how many great things we have done. We will be judged by, “I was hungry and you gave me to eat. I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in.”

Hungry not only for bread-but hungry for love.

Naked not only for clothing-but naked of human dignity and respect.

Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks-but homeless because of rejection.

This is Christ in distressing disguise.
