While Ginger was in Charlotte, I spent the weekend in Washington, DC, at the second of 12 weekend residencies in the graduate courses I am taking. The classes are held a half block away from the Capital, and during one of my breaks, I walked down to the National Archives. Among other things, the Archives houses The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
This statue sits just outside the entrance of the Archives. It is called "Heritage", and the quote across the bottom reads, "The heritage of the past is the seed that brings forth the harvest of the future."
