We Love Cemeteries

And these people have been dead for a very, very long time

I love me some cemeteries. Green oases in an urban landscape, history on a personal scale, they are a touch of the past we should all appreciate. Personally, I appreciate Rock Creek Cemetery the most.

Officially known as Ministry of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Rock Creek Parish, the cemetery is the final resting place of those famous and not so much. Mary Ann Campbell came here in 1816, while Tim Russert came just this year.

I come often myself, to walk the Taxi Dog under the city’s largest trees and remark on how we remember. I hope I am remembered too.
