Now it’s history

Regardless of what signs and gates were put up, my students, and a lot of other people quietly walked into the World War II memorial.  Although Abe was covered up in the background, the kids still took their once in a lifetime pictures.  In all actuality, their pictures are much more “once in a lifetime” than any other ever taken at the same spot.  It was history in motion.

Of course the government has reopened, but their will always be the few weeks that it was closed, and in terms of history, hopefully that is a once in a lifetime ordeal.
