Every Sunday, we try to take time after church, to go tour places that Dustin isn't able to go during the week because of work. Today we went with our friends to the Arlington National Cemetary. It is so incredible to see all of those head stones in honor of those who have served our country. I was very impressed with the reverance, and cleanliness that was throughout the entire cemetary. Last summer, in Texas, we were able to see the place where JFK was assassinated. I have since then been intrigued with the story, and seeing JFK and his families' burial sight today was so neat! We also were able to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. There, we were able to watch the changing of the guards. For those who have never seen this, it is very impressive how strict and perfected these gaurds are. When watching the top of their hats, they glide so smoothly that they look as though they are floating. I am so glad I was able to see this with Dustin. History intrigues us both, and this is the best place to be to see memorials, and monuments of those who have made our nation what it is today.
