On this trip we had a little more time so we were able to go see some of the sites. After we arrived in Crystal City we jumped on the train and headed to Arlington National Cemetery. By the way - D.C.'s train system is so much easier to figure out than Chicago's.
I don't think that I have ever been to a place that was so quiet with so many people. There is something about seeing rows and rows of all these men and women that have died for our country. One of the things we saw while there was John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy's gravesite. Something I learned while there was that they had a stillborn daughter and lost a 2 day old son. This was something I was very unaware of. Sometimes it is sad to hear you have something in common with someone but also a relief to hear that someone else has gone through something similar.
