"The opportunity we had to take a special tour of the Capitol Building is one that not everyone gets to experience. I learned so much from this special tour."
- Alex Templin

"I actually got to be in the room where it happens..."
- Gregory Heathcock

"The National Holocaust Museum was my favorite part of the whole trip. Every American should visit this museum. It is impactful, respectful, and hopeful all at the same time."
