30: This was a once in a lifetime trip. I enjoyed all the aspects of the entire trip, I learned countless facts of U.S. history, and I loved every detail that God put into our country. In this trip, I learned a great deal of facts on everything, from the beginnings of our government, to the lives of some of America’s greatest people, to the horrors of war. I learned more on the history and workings of our government from this trip. I appreciated every part of the trip. I saw the abilities and hard work our forefathers put into creating out country. I loved the great times with my friends. I was grateful for the kind people, luxurious hotels, and delicious foods. I liked just about everything about the trip. Throughout the entire trip, I was happy. I loved the experience of traveling, the people, the history, and the amazing places God gave us. Traveling with my friends in the bus was one of my favorite parts of the trip. We joked, laughed, and socialized. The hotels were a real luxury that I enjoyed with my roommates. The idea that you were in the Capitol of the United States of America was surreal. Knowing that you are standing right next to the graves of the most influential people in America was amazing. Seeing the beauty of this world and the abilities given by God to people to shape this country was truly humbling. This trip with the Milpitas Christian Class of 2010 was very enjoyable. I loved the learning and fun of this trip. The entire experience is something I will not regret. | My Experience

31: Extra Credit: Benjamin Franklin | The above picture relates to Benjamin Franklin because he said "I have often looked at that picture behind the president without being able to tell whether it was a rising or setting sun. Now at length I have the happiness to know that it is indeed a rising, not a setting sun." when he signed the Constitution at the Constitutional Convention in 1787. | The picture to the left relates to Benjamin Franklin because it contains Benjamin Franklin in the painting.
