This past week, the 8th grade students at my school took their yearly trip to Washington DC. While we spent plenty of time walking around the city, visiting each site of importance, what I was most struck by was the amount of quotes that seem to decorate the city. These quotes of Washington DC were by far one of my favorite aspects of the nation’s capital.
Below, I have shared with you a few of my favorite quotations from around the city. Not only do these quotes have special meaning to me, but they also seem to bring the city of Washington DC to life with voices that so clearly echo from the past.
Harry S. Truman
Martin Luther King Jr.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
John F. Kennedy
