dear Alice, this is very beautiful and meaningful to me. One of my dearest friends made an extremely important trip in honor of her son's 18th birthday--she had to overcome all odds to do it, but she did it because her son had been waiting a very long time to see it and he has autism. I hope some day to see this incredible sight myself.

I have always wished to see these majestic monuments. It is so impressive to think of the scale and the time and all the lives that lived to make that happen. Thank you for sharing your 30 Words! Enjoy the day. Erin
