I woke this morning to the news that someone has vandalized the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.
One of the beautiful things about our monuments is that you can visit around the clock. Wandering them late on a warm summer night, when they are all lit up, when they are quiet without the hundreds of tourists, is a gift. Perhaps it’s a gift we won’t always have.
All I can say to the person or people responsible is this: If you don’t have any respect for yourselves at least have respect for your own history.
