FC: Washington D.C.Trip | Russell Mecua March 6-12,2011 Period 3

1: The Ground Zero site will be remembered as one of the tragic events in America's history. 19 Terrorists hijacked two planes and they crashed the World Trade Center along with their passenger victims. 3,000 people died in the day of September 11, 2001 in the twin towers. Today, when we went to Ground Zero, the U.S. Government is trying to rebuild another tower called the Freedom Tower. One it is finished, there will be another wonderful future of America. God bless America.

39: Experience Page | What Did I Like What I like about this trip is that the Korean War memorial is interesting in the trip of Washington D.C. The statues of soldiers are life size and the expression of their faces are realistic, and the walls shows many faces of the soldiers who fought the Forgotten War. What I learn in this trip is the Holocaust. Over six million Jews or more died from the hands of the evil Nazis. This is one of the most darkest events in Human History. And God use this dark event to make us learn from it so that someday in the future, we will prevent another Holocaust. There is always a tragic lesson we must learn. Those who cause the Holocaust will be sent to justice and their souls will be judged by God. We will never forget what they have done horrible things to the Jews. Never deny the Holocaust, remember it as a lesson. What I appreciate about this trip is Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President. He is one of the best presidents the United States of America ever have. Without him, slaves will suffer than before and is unstoppable until God destroyed it. Lincoln did the right thing freeing the slaves, but the freed needs to wait for many years to gain true freedom and rights. And God will guide them despite violence and discrimination that comes in their way. Today, the white race and the black race slowly united in America. Even though John Wilkes Booth killed Lincoln to avenge the Confederates, the sacrifices of Lincoln was not in vain. We will remember him as a hero.
