This was our third year to take students to DC, and luckily we both departed and returned with 11 kids from the 10th and 11th grades. This group included two younger siblings of former DC participants, three missionary kids, and one member of my discipleship group.
I watched Lincoln with Ben last night, and as I heard the words of both this speech and his second inaugural, I understood and agreed again with their placement inside the Lincoln Monument. They are so special, so dear, so central to American values.

Stay tuned for part two!
