I went to DC yesterday to see the cherry blossoms, and they were beautiful. But it was the people who impressed me greatly. Walking around the Tidal Basin was like a United Nations. There were people from every walk of life, every shade of color, seemingly just about every nation in the world. All were having a good time. All, except tired toddlers, were smiling and having a good time. My thought was, Yes, this is America at its best welcoming people from all over, living together peacefully and having a good time together. I also saw a glimpse of America as it will be in the future. I will not be around to see it, but it will happen. There were so many mixed-race couples, black and white, oriental and white, oriental and black, with their children walking and enjoying the beautiful weather and the beautiful blossoms. It was heart warming.
