Albert Einstein Memorial

I stumbled across this statue of the great scientist located on the grounds of the National Academy of Sciences.


Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial

It’s not yet open, and but the new memorial is partially visible from Constitution Avenue.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial

I visited the Franklin Delano Roosevelt National Memorial in Washington, D.C.  Although not as tall as the Washington Monument or as prominent as the Lincoln or Jefferson Memorials it is rather expansive.

Mrs. Roosevelt gets a statue.

The unemployment and breadlines that plagued the Roosevelt years is depicted.

Roosevelt was famous for his fireside chats which drew millions of listeners via radio.

Roosevelt took great strides to conceal his use of a wheelchair.  Not sure he would’ve approved of this statue.

Pentagon Memorial

I visited the Pentagon Memorial, built in remembrance of the 184 people who lost their lives here during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  I have driven past the Pentagon a couple of times since the memorial was completed but have never stopped.  I also visited the site of the World Trade Center and the Flight 93 Memorial, but this is the first of the September 11th memorials that have been completed.
