Home now and back to work.  Got home at 1AM, got to sleep at 3, and up at 5 to go into Day shift.  I am about half alive right now.  Not a good way to spend my day.  Tonight is trick or treat so I can't even go home and take a nap! 

 

The rally was very interesting.  Seems to have gathered a positive result from most people.  Of course the people who matter probably don't care.  As others have stated in this thread what difference does the little guy make writing letters and waving signs?  I'd like to feel at one time that made a huge difference.  The people spouting off about gay marriage seem to get a lot of attention, and that doesn't effect the economic situation of our country one bit.

 

The speeches were great, as I said above the people(senators, state reps, union leaders, ect) came out of the wood work to give speeches.  Some very rousing, some even I didn't agree with. 

 

The capital is a beautiful place.  I've never been one to say an object can inspire an emotional response.  The Vietnam war memorial is very somber.  A black scar upon the land scape, very sad place.  You walk up to it and you honestly feel a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach.  Now on the other hand, walk into the WW2 memorial.  Its up lifting.  Fountains, huge columns representing all the states.  Pillars for each theater of operation.  Even as I type this I can feel my skin tingle thinking about the emotions this inspires.  You walk in there you feel victorious, and proud. 

 

The Washington monument is powerful feeling, and the Lincoln memorial to me inspired a calm and pondering state. 

 

The White house was the least impressive thing I seen.  Honestly I believe that I was expecting much more than what it actually was.

 

Some pictures for you guys to look at.  If you have never been to DC it is a really neat place to visit.

I was there some years back. The Wall was a very unique experience for me, also.  Even the traveling 'Wall' has an effect on me! Thanks for the pics!

Its a unique experience, and for a veteran I'm sure it would be even more so.  I have a few relatives with their names on there.  I didn't look for them, as we were slightly in a hurry. 

I plan on going back next year with the family.
