FDR Monument, Washington DC, November 2009.
This monument is one of the less trafficked one in DC, but deserves much more attention than it gets.  Have lived here 10 years and had never been until this year.  It’s tremendous.  This particular quote was very inspiring on this day:

“We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred, is a wedge designed to attack our civilization.”

How fitting a tribute for a man who presided over the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.
