Adam has a cousin who lives in Washington DC and works for a Senator's office. She was able to get us in for a tour of the capitol building through the Senator's office. It was an incredible experience. The building itself was awe-inspiring, with amazing architecture and beautiful murals and statues inside. It was really good for me to learn more about our government system, too, and gain more of a respect and appreciation for the freedom that I enjoy. One of the highlights of the tour was going into the senate chamber and witnessing the senate in session. They were debating the oil and gas issue. It was so cool to watch and listen to!
