Luisa and I are in DC this weekend and, last night, we walked to the Washington Monument from our hotel and then to the Lincoln Memorial. I've always wanted to see it all at night. So, I stood taking in this view for the third time in my life.
I stood there in 1989 during the March for Reproductive Rights.
I stood there in 1993 during the March for LGBT Equality.
And last night, I stood there with over 20 years of life experience since my last visit.
In that time, Luisa and I have bought a house and had kids. We've had career changes and traveled. We've made a life that is beyond what I could have imagined in 1993.
It was a good night.
