Lincoln

After a long day of sightseeing we head towards the Lincoln Memorial to catch the sun's last light before it dips below the hills that rise gently above the Potomac River. As the memorial becomes illuminated I focus on the stoic Lincoln sitting in his chair. The people both stand and move in a quiet reflection that befits the monument to our greatest president. And all the while, he watches over us all with his customary magnanimous grace.
