The Lincoln Memorial

I always feel a sense of reverence when I visit the Lincoln Memorial. Apparently others feel it too. When I visited on Monday, a young man was taking a photograph of his friends inside the memorial. I overheard him say, "Hey! Stop making gang signs for the picture!"

The other kids laughed, but he became very adamant, "I'm serious. Don't make those signs in here."

They laughed again, to which he said, "I'm dead serious. Don't make those signs while you're here." They finally relented, and I was very proud of him for respecting this sacred place.
