FDR Memorial . . .

I could have spent more time wandering through the
FDR Memorial
reading the quotes and looking at all the sites,
winding paths, sculpted grounds, quotes, sculpture
beautiful weather sure played into
making it memorable 


one of my favorites
wonder why we struggle with this 
reach out and  touch hands with tenderness
and raise our young to respect and regard 

let us listen

may there be peace

we enjoyed visiting
Washington DC
we had each been there before
we enjoyed being there together this past week
kind of a pre anniversary celebration
October 18 is our day
Happy Anniversary Jack
with my love

I would have missed this view if Jack had
not stopped me to take a look.
I promise you more pictures,
tomorrow and after.
Until then,
Love, Lynne

That is a beautiful memorial but the quotes are amazing. It's so sad that we don't abide by them anymore. Happy Anniversary to you and Jack. Have a wonderful day. Blessings. Pam

Happy anniversary to you and Jack! My hubby frequently draws my attention to great photo ops, too. Isn't it wonderful! My daughter enjoyed the Roosevelt display, too. We have a photo of her standing back-to-back with Eleanor. It's priceless. Thanks for sharing all the quotes--I'm not sure I really took them all in enough when we were there. Great post!
