My experience in Washington, Dc was fun. I liked going to Capitol Hill to meet Congressman Elijah Cummings. Elijah talked about life when he was our age. The stories he told us were captivating and I could really relate to what he was saying. Elijah also told us to say “We are the now”. This means that we don’t have to wait until the future to make a change we are already making it happen in our community and the world. When we went to the Holocaust Museum it really touched me. It was sad that somebody would go that much out of their way to abuse and kill the Jews because of their race. The trip was fun and I wish we could of stay longer.
