Sunday was Superbowl Day and having zero interest in watching the game, Jenn and I decided to visit the Newseum in DC. This used to be housed just outside DC and had moved to downtown DC in 2002. I had visited the old one many years ago and really enjoyed it so was looking forward to the new site especially since the place would not have its usual hoards, because folks would be at home preparing their pizza, wings and other munchies for their football viewing in front of the TV.
There was also a 12 minute film on the reporters working during that tragedy, and struggling to overcome their own emotions to capture the event and effects on people there, an amazing perspective that showed how brave and dedicated these people were who covered the attack. The film was only 12 minutes long but seemed longer because it was so emotional from beginning to end. I was a mess as I walked out and obviously so had many others before me, because conveniently placed by the cinema exit was a box of tissues.
We were finished within a few hours, a fabulous tour all the more enjoyable due to the lack of crowds and yelling kids. We didn't need to come back the following day and even had some of the afternoon left.
