At the other end of the reflecting pool (which by the way isn't very reflective, and full of moss and slime) is the Lincoln Memorial. Like most of these memorials you have to climb stairs... lots of stairs.
There was shade up there, blessed shade so up we went. It was very quiet and reverent inside. Everyone showed their respect by their reverence for good ole' Abe. It was great. Abraham Lincoln did many great things for our country and deserved our reverence.
