Washington memorials

Yesterday I visited the Lincoln Memorial and the two dedicated to those lost in Vietnam and Korea.To see those names of the dead inscribed in stone and to read the profound words of Lincoln about out responsibility to carry on in their names was stunning. This great nation was built on the ultimate sacrifices of so many ,and now we are immobilized by a “do nothing Congress.”It should be part of the regimen of elected officials to weekly stand in front of these memorials and justify their lack of statesmanship to those who perished that we might continue.They were not just statistics but flesh and blood sons and daughters who were not owned by lobbies, but rather be belief in the Union and what it meant to the future.
