Four score and seven years ago…

Over yonder that there hill, we will bring our horses and hoop skirts to discover a new land!

Well okay, maybe my Civil War era lingo needs some work. Fortunately, it wasn’t a requirement for taking a day trip back in time by hiking on Little Round Top, jaunting through the Peach Orchard at Gettysburg National Military Park, and strolling through the National Mall of D.C. viewing the national monuments. Since Monday, we’ve already put quite a dent in the east U.S. We started in Cleveland, made our way down to Pittsburgh for a primanti sandwich loaded with pastrami, french fries and topped with coleslaw. It is as mouth-wateringly delicious as it sounds. Then, we followed the not-so-yellow brick road to Gettysburg for a couple days and after hopped over to our nations capital, Washington D.C. Despite the gloomy weather, all of these destinations were fantastic to see. I could write more about each, but instead I will let the pictures tell you. Enjoy!

Washington D.C.

This country amazes me and all that it’s been through. Today, I analyzed a quote at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. It facilitates strength and wisdom, and the way our world will thrive.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”
