This was Memorial Day in D.C. My roommates and I walked all over the nation's capital. We climbed stairs, saw the Fathers, climbed trees, saw fishermen, and a lot of hot dog stands. We sweat in places we didn't know we could - and I'm not just talking about famous marble memorials that require our utmost respect. Our favorite memorial was that of FDR's. He hated war. He also that the most important thing we could do as Americans is to maintain hope and service for all.
