Lots of reminders here of the significance of the government over lives everyday. You can see the Capitol, Arlington Cemetery, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, Washington Monument, the Old Post Office, and many government buildings that make up the District of Columbia. Even Arlington Bridge is symbolic as it links the North and South with Lincoln Memorial and Lee Custis House.
It is the day of decision for the USA. Regardless of the outcome of today's vote there will be significant changes and difficult challenges that will ensue.
