Not being able to travel abroad, I enjoy the photos from travels. Last time in Washington, D.C., my husband went to the National Air and Space Museum. In contrast, I explored the National Archives Museum at Pennsylvania Avenue opposite the Navy Memorial and the close the National Gallery of Art at the National Mall. I would like to go back and see it again in much more detail.

I had to see the original copies of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I don’t think I was allowed to take any pictures anywhere at the museum, but I took some before I realised it. There was a long line of people waiting to see the treasured documents. The rest of the exhibitions were more comfortable to access. A few glimpses on the many things to see.

  1. Thank you for taking such an interest in the U.S. We were started as an experiment in freedom 245 years ago (relatively still young). We continue to make mistakes and many abuse their freedoms, but we push forward.

    • I know this crisis will pass somehow. It’s a major war going on right now. I am sad about the historic church that burned last night at the LaFayette Park and that people who just opened their business had them destroyed in different cities

      • And now the autopsy reports say that he did not die from strangulation. It was reported that he was drunk and had a heart condition, so they’re looking into Floyd’s death more thoroughly.
        When mobs react like this, it’s just an excuse to loot and act out. It’s sad.

      • So sad, yes. His death was the spark that ignited the riots. But it seems orchestrated by citizen organisers prepared for long time ago. Otherwise, it could not have spread that fast to so many Democratic cities. The police were ordered to stand down. Bricks handed out to young black people by white Antifa people.
        POTUS in the Situation room monitoring events. Irregular warfare, infiltration versus invasion, insurgency. The MSM have photoshopped images of America on fire. I get my information from Q. Military intelligence close to POTUS. I will send you the link if you are interested

      • https://qmap.pub/?css=light This is one of the places you can find Q posts. You can scroll back to the first posts from October 2017 and enter search keywords. Key players and Potus ’s tweets. They are connected by timestamps and Q posts numbers. Some of the info is disinformation as the enemy reads them too

      • This is a very proud moment for me. I have been following Q since the beginning, and it’s sometimes hard to know things in advance and wait and wait for JUSTICE while being mostly ridiculed for opinions that don’t match the average. Yesterday, POTUS retweeted a Q patriot’s tweet and immediately that Twitter account was taken down by Twitter

      • I am so glad that your President made an EO Saturday regulating the misconduct of social media. They are supposed to be platforms for free speech, but they are publishers who edit everything they don’t like.

      • Thank you ekurie. Truths and lies are so mixed together that it’s tough to discern when things happen. I too, have read that he had a story like the one described on the Facebook page. Now the world is reacting and protesting while there are so many deaths and murders going by unnoticed
