Walking along we came upon the World War II Memorial and I was amazed at its size,beauty and grace. There is a large reflection pool that seemed much larger than an Olympic sized swimming pool. At either end were platforms that looked out over the water. You had to climb the stairs to get up on the platform. There was a pair of doves above the platform. From the platform you got a birds eye view of the reflection pool. It made me think of how many tears the loved ones of the veterans that died must have cried when they got that dreadful news. The memorial was officially opened to the public in April 2004 and it is a must see while walking around the monuments of Washington D.C.
