In just a couple of years, we’ll be coming up on the 100th commemoration of the start of World War I. Whether you think of the 28th of June, 1914 or the 28th of July of that same year as its start, it was a war that left an indellible mark on Europe and on world history. Here are some photos taken at the WWI Memorial in Washington, DC.
Here’s how our nation’s capital looks if you climb to the top of the Washington Monument. It’s… monumental. I love the architecture and the way it’s been laid out. It is a pity that the ranks of the public servants have grown so much in recent times that certain government organizations no longer fit into the buildings originally designed for them. While some growth is understandable, there’s real, lasting value in the idea of a lean, simple government and a republic, not a democracy, as the US of A was originally created.
