Yesterday as I walked the halls of the US Capitol looking at the architecture, the paintings, the sculptures I was in awe. It was amazing to walk through the original Supreme Court chambers which are actually in the Capitol building. 70% of the furniture there, to include the big clock on the wall is the original furniture that survived the burning of the Capitol building by the British. To sit in the House of Representatives Gallery where our Congress debate and vote on laws is just humbling.
To walk and experience the same building and rooms that our founding fathers did as they formulated the documents and laws that set this country up to be the greatest country in the world is simply awesome. It resets in one’s mind (at least mine) why we Soldiers, Airman, Sailors and Marines do what we do and why we do it. To Preserve a Country as great as ours. I wish most Americans could appreciate what a great country they live in and not take it for granted.
