As many of you know, my job is in downtown DC, smack dab in the middle of the monuments, etc. My office looks out at the Air and Space Museum and the National Gallery is behind that. Awesome. Sometimes working in DC, surrounded by constant political bickering and gossip, etc. gets a bit much, but not today . . . There is a Holiday Inn across the street from my office, where I park. I went through the lobby today on my way to the garage and had one of those moments that make you stop and think. The lobby was full of elderly veterans -- obviously in DC for Memorial Day weekend. Many were there with their wives and frankly, these were the WWII and Korean War vets for sure. So frail and proud -- sipping Starbucks! Thank you soldiers. Well done.
