The White House

Thanks to friends of friends, my parents, Laura and I got to tour the White House on Friday. We didn’t get to go into the West Wing, but the East Wing instead. You would think that the house is big – and it is if you consider it just a residence, but for what it is, the residence and offices and ceremonial and diplomatic greeting rooms of this nation’s CEO, it’s really rather small. Some of the modesty of our first president is reflected in its construction, but there is also style as well.

I feel honored to be able to walk in the halls that our current and former presidents have walked. The sense of power is almost tangible.
