I remember when I first learned about the holocaust in 8th grade. I was appalled, beside myself. I was in shock that no one had told be about this sooner because it was such a big deal. I saw a similar reaction in my son when he learned about slavery. Then he learned that Abe Lincoln helped to put a stop to it. That made him a real life super hero in my 9 year old son’s eyes. So when we went to DC we took him to the memorial, and he had tears in his eyes. He was starstruck, beyond happy. He also got to see Lincoln’s real top hat at the Smithsonian.
My daughter is only 5 so she was most impressed with all the fountains and the reflecting pool. She’s just drawn to water.
I shot some film while I was there as well as some digital.
We showed them memorials, museums, actual Van Gogh and Monet works… I’m pretty sure they were most excited about the indoor tiny hotel pool, but hey, that’s ok.
