My day in D.C.

Washington Monument

Today I spent a quick day in D.C., touring a few places as part of the GAiN Conference.

We went to the National Geographic Museum and watched Jerusalem3D.1And I took a selfie with the pope in the gift shop. ;-) Then we went to the Newseum.2I learned that I can’t look through Pulitzer Prize-winning photos. So many are heart-rending…

We drove through by the Jefferson Memorial and stopped at the Lincoln Memorial and the Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial.

  1. Regarding footnote 2.
    I’ve been to the Newseum twice. Both times, I left the Pulitzer photo exhibit in tears half way through. It was a priceless – and perhaps unforgettable learning experience for my daughters as well. So many questions raised in those photos and so many answers to questions unasked.

  2. Todd, I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one.

    I came close to buying Moments as a souvenir, a coffee table book of Pulitzer Prize-winning photos. Then I realized I might make my way through it once, after which I would either never open it again, or I would become desensitized to the pictures. As neither is a good option, I left it in the gift shop.

What do you think?
