Tonight we entertained our friends in from Kansas City with a lovely dinner at 2 Amys up north of the Cathedral. We wined and dined, desserted and even Limoncello’d in the cozy space, enjoying each others company. Tiff and I bid them farewell and drove back home, over the Key Bridge and onto 110 toward 395.
As we came up on the Pentagon, we caught a view of spotlights heading into the night sky, and as we turned onto 395 South, and right by the Pentagon, there was the northwest wall, coated in blue light, but for one brilliant white spotlight, which highlights an American Flag.
We slowed to a crawl on the ramp, as did all those behind and around us, to marvel at the lights in the sky, and the light on the wall.
Sometimes, memorials are just perfectly fitting.
