The capitol of the United States of America is filled with history! Through monuments and buildings that were built in the past millennium, there is so much to see and do. Getting to read what was behind the memorials on the walls and the names was a wonder. There was just so much to read from one monument alone. One of my favorite places to visit was the World War II memorial. As a huge World War II buff, getting to see all the beauty of this monument brought some tears to my eyes. This memorial was beautifully designed and pictures do not do it justice. Getting to see all of the war memorials came with the reminder that freedom is not free. The many men and women who gave their lives are remembered in these structures.
