Ah, the Library of Congress… Big Red’s dream come true. She is such a bookworm & I LOVE it! The building is next to the Supreme Court.
The fountain out front is lovely; I believe it is Neptune Fountain. I would think that it would be easy to get lost in there, with all of the collections of books, film, recordings, and other media. Big Red & I might go in there, never to be seen again.
Down the street, past the Supreme Court, there were some of the Senate buildings. I think that it is important to remember what is said on the writing on the building, “The Senate is the living symbol of our Union of States”. I also want to remind our Senators that they are a representative of us, the people that form that Union.
Across the street from that building is another complex, this one had gates that led to a courtyard. I thought it was amusing that the gate had a “S” on it. I guess it is to let everyone know that this gate is reserved for the Senate.
Next to the Senate buildings, there stood a church. I wonder of the Senators visit that church, trying to find salvation for their wrongs. Perhaps there are a few that pray for guidance. Who knows? Either way, the church parking lot could have been a little more full that morning.
