Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President
Mamie Doud Eisenhower
Doud Dwight - Dwight & Mamie's 1st born son, interred in 1966.
Today we are visiting the location of our 34th US President final resting place, I wish to take a moment to give you a take on these pics if you will please ... As a kid I never seemed to have a thought or issue with taking a grave side picture ...but as a I grow older ...I feel a bit different ...I am not meaning to disrespect the person or??? It just feels odd??! (As a kid I wanted a memory of being there, done that kind of thing, now?) When we visited this location, you feel the sense of peace & quiet. Like you didn't want to yell. I mean nobody was around, we were the only 2 in the building. We certainly would not be bugging the Eisenhower's, they are resting in peace ... now I never mean to disrespect EVER. I am just curious? I just googled a word to make sure I was using the correct term ... I feel I am a very reverent person. "feeling or showing deep and solemn respect" and that does not mean I respect their beliefs, thought, feelings, I just want to be kind and respect them as a person. Does that make any sense whatsoever???!?!?!?
