History All Over the Place

My family had the awesome opportunity to take a private tour of the West Wing of the White House a few weeks ago. I remember standing in the doorway of the Oval Office and trying to imagine all the history that went on in the very spot I stood... the decisions, the dramas. I stood in front of priceless paintings and famous furniture, the Resolute Desk behind which nearly every president since Taft has agonized over weighty matters. I stood outside the door of the Situation Room and stuck my head in the Cabinet Room.

History all over the place.
