In my former career I visited DC often. I have never been in the military, but I was drawn to The Wall each time I was there. I always walked away with a profound sense of pride and tears in my eyes from the small remembrances at the base.
Over the years I visited the memorials and monuments in DC many times and never got bored with them.
I chose my country, most of you were gifted with it when you were born here. Appreciate what you have.
May the Force be with you.

I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
The constitution of the United States asserts that all power is inherent in the people, that they may exercise it by themselves, that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed! Thomas Jefferson
