Lincoln Memorial

He sits in thoughtful repose, burdened it would seem with the gravity of his missior to save a fractured nation. His gaze is steadfast fixed in the direction of the majestic Capitol dome, which he ordered finished as a symbol of the Union he sought to preserve. Permanently inscribed on the wall to his right is his most famous speech, The Gettysburg Address. To the left, the words of his second inaugural address echo in stone, "To do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace".

Like no other monument in Washington DC the Lincoln Memorial inspires a solemn hush among all who step-inside to view the 19-fool white Georgian marble sculpture of Presideni Abraham Lincoln. To stand before his statue is to feel a powerful reverence a kind of presence. as if the great president himself were about tc enter the room.

The Lincoln Memorial is situated at the west end of the Mall, facing the Capitol and the Washington Monument from the far side of the Reflecting Pool, thereby completing a pleasing symmetrical of major monuments.

Music is the best communication on the world. Regardless of whether individuals don't understand the language that you're singing in, despite everything they know great music when they hear it.
