My fiance and I took advantage of a free day between our two u2 shows to tour DC. Our first stop off the metro was Arlington National Cemetery. I've never been, but have a feeling it won't be the last time. If you can tune out the air traffic leaving Reagan National (and good luck with that), the beauty of the grounds is in its solemnity as thousands upon thousands of stone markers march above our capital's skyline keeping watch on the politicians below. A quiet reminder to not desecrate the sacrifices of the past by squandering our future (good luck with that too).
