Response to mountain grammy (Reply #31)

33. Yes both. I will never experience the utter joy of walking

toward the Mall on the first one. There were hundreds of us walking down the street and everyone was so utterly elated it was like we were all walking on air.

One of my fondest memories though was how great it was in DC before 9/11. We went one time for 4th of July when they would shoot fireworks off at night. My husband and I bought a cheap blanket and walked up to the Washington monument and laid it down that morning next to the monument thinking if someone stole it it wasn't the end of the world. That evening we walked through hundreds and hundreds of people on blankets and there was our blanket untouched laying there

There was such freedom in life back then that I sorely miss and not just in DC. 9-11 took that away and then covid another devastating blow.
