Hey Ya’ll! This is Betsy Kelly. We arrived in DC yesterday evening after a long day of travel. The train ride up here was great! This morning we split up and went to two different locations. One group went to Thrive DC, a local soup kitchen, and the other group went to So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E.), another soup kitchen. I was in the group that went to (S.O.M.E.). There, we served breakfast to some of the homeless people of DC. It was an amazing experience for each of us. They were very grateful for all of our service, and we were grateful for the opportunity to serve them.
This afternoon we all joined together to go ro the Newseum. This is a museum filled with exhibits about major events that have been in the news. It was great! We had a lot of fun roll-playing a news anchor.
Overall we had a great first day in Washington DC!
