I've always been a little boy crazy. So yesterday when I had the opportunity to hang with 9 guys on a day trip to Washington, D.C. - it was just my kind of trip! Ok, it was with my son Griffin, his classmates and one Dad in our group.

The 8th Grade trip to our Nation's Capital couldn't have been on a more beautiful day. It truly was picture perfect - the weather was glorious with blue skies, unseasonably mild temperature, and brilliant autumn colors in all their glory.

It was also Veteran's Day. Walking around the monuments with Veterans in our midst brought a new perspective and hopefully meaning to my son and his classmates. The Vietnam Memorial in particular had Veterans mingling with each other, sharing photos, conducting interviews and doing rubbings of names on the wall. Maya Lin, the architect of Vietnam War Memorial created something incredibly beautiful and profound with her design. The Wall envelopes and invites viewers to become a part of the space and thus, the experience. Art and artists truly have the power to transform... and to heal.
