Reflecting on what I learn, including the stuff that's whack--
Ann:I always found it a bit profound that the inscription refers to a "temple"...Must have had a few "God-Fearing" people around at the time, eh?I loved going there at sunset(the only thing that tosses a damper on beinbg there are all the airliners flying low overhead)Other than that...it's a fantastic experience.Now, quick...name the movie where an alien visitor takes a young boy to the Memorial and he ponders the words...(extra points if you can name the actors that played both the visitora and the boy)Thanks for the peek into a great memorial for a great man.
Dear Bob,To me it ALWAYS feels like a temple. And they don't let airliners fly by it now--too close to the White House.The Jefferson Memorial though, is somewhat another story. I don't know the Movie! Readers, it's a Quiz!!Thanks for writing in!Ann
It is a temple, perhaps to transcendence. There just are no words for what it meant to me to visit that space. Sadly, I do not recall off the top of my head the movie that Bob referenced! I'll have to look it up.
