I thank the Lord and my husband for giving us such a wonderful vacation! we went to Washington D.C. and New York.
The state that left a big impression in my heart is Washington D.C.because this is where our country was founded, here is where the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence are store. The trip to see the Declaration of Independence was very important and emotional for my son Kyle (15 year old) who appreciates the country where he was born.
For me the whole trip was great but my favorite part was to walk on the streets where Lincoln once walked and to be at the places where he spend his last moments on this earth, this part was very special to me.
I love this country and it's history and I'm teaching my children to love and appreciate it too.
My husband was in the Army, National Gard and Navy and now our older son is in the Air Force.
I'm from a third world country, that is why I know what I'm talking about when I say that there is no other country like the United States of America.
