American History Museum


The American History Museum is my favorite of all the Smithsonian Museums. There you will see much of our nation's history, the beauty and tragedy of it.
While we were in D.C. I had a sense of belonging to the people around me. Belonging to people of different race, culture, back ground, and religious belief. This history belongs to each of us, and continues to affect and shape us as a nation. I became increasing grateful for the sacrifices made by so many, whether sitting at a lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C., fighting for others who were robbed of their freedoms, or for keeping a watchful eye on our flag one Sept. eve in 1814... visiting D.C. caused me to grasp hold of the truth that we are fortunate to live in "the land of the free, and the home of the brave."
