I spent the Day enjoying our Nations Capitol. I never thought I would get a history lesson from someone who actually lived through it. I met Harry Flemings in the cab we took. HE was 93 year old man who has driven a cab for 68 year in Washington D.C. Imagine how incredible it was to hear his stories of MLK’s march in Washington. He said he was in the March. MLK JR. Is one of my heroes, I felt like I was right there the way Harry described it to me. He also showed us the Watergate hotel and the Kennedy Center for the ARTS. I am really glad I got to meet a part of Living History!
Another exciting part of the day was going to the Vietnam memorial. We did a rubbing for one of our family friends. HIs Dad was killed in Vietnam. While we were there , I met two Korean War vets. I have this campaign I started in California to thank any service member I see for their service. The look on his face when I thanked him was unbelievable. He said to me”Thank you , you are a great young man and I hope you never have to serve, but I know you would do a good job if you do. ” it made me think how important it is to thank all our service members old and present. They gave us so much we can not repay.
I saw a shirt that said it is never too late to say Thank You .
So next time you see a vet or a Service member Thank them for their service!!!!!!
