Thanks to Google picking a random number today! I figured I might as well try something new.  Here is the picture.  #44!

I have mentioned in the past our travels to Washington, D.C. for the National Inclusion Project’s yearly gala.  I always book an extra day for downtime or sightseeing.  Obviously in Washington, D.C. there is a LOT to see.  We had so little time to see so much and I feel a return trip in the future is necessary!

The Smithsonian was not far from our hotel.  With it being such a large complex of museums, and us of little time, we had to pick the one we wanted to go through the most. The National Museum of American History. So much to see, to take in. I remember being in the room with artifacts and pictures from the Twin Towers. I had such an overwhelming feeling of sadness, I had to exit that room.

This particular photo is obviously the display of the hat that Abraham Lincoln was wearing the night he was assassinated. To stand there, looking at that, and understanding that this man was real and he was actually wearing that was surreal to say the least.

I can’t even begin to tell you about all the displays and artifacts this museum holds.  It is a must see.  A must experience!

You can read about it more on their website.
