weekly photo challenge: infinite

This week’s challenge made me think of the infinite stubbornness, incompetence, sense of entitlement and lack of awareness radiating from Capitol Hill. The disappointing closure of all National Parks in the US only hints to the larger problems average Americans struggle with every day.

In case one wants to visit, know that 1st Amendment activities are only allowed at the World War II Memorial.

Monuments are for the people, opened by the people.

The Lincoln Memorial is the only monument not opened by the people.
It is “protected” by a well-armed guard.

    • It was really sad to see the monuments ‘closed’ but I was happy most people visited the monuments anyway. There was a nice sense of community that day.
