We were up in DC this weekend, so we decided to visit Arlington Cemetery.
Neither of us had been there before, and we were impressed. With war veterans walking beside you, memorials to so many great men and women, and over 600 acres of gravestones and monuments, it's hard to not be touched. I couldn't believe all the perfectly lined rows, and we both really liked the ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I also don't think I go many places outside of church where I'm expected to be reverent and respectful, and I really liked that people were quiet and reserved. It really added to the experience.
I'm glad we went. Places like that just make a girl feel grateful. And weepy.
