That's great news. I've not been there yet, and I'm glad I'll have a chance to see it.My school's 8th grade trip to DC a few years ago met up with some WWII vets at the WWII memorial in DC. It was at the time of the official opening, and when our kids saw the vets (identified by hats and jackets) they ran up, gave hugs, and said "Thanks for what you did." We heard from one of the vet's wives telling us how moved they were by the exchange. Gives us hope for the future, doesn't it?
Thanks for the comment. Sounds like you had one of those momments that come around every once in a while when teaching seems worthwhile and you can tell you made a difference. I use those momments to get me through the periods of not turing in homework, late night grading, 10 minutes to eat lunch.......Thanks.
