This was one of the hottest day that I had experienced in my entire life. After coming back from George Washington University, we took the bus and then walked for thirty minutes in the heat to get to Captain White Seafood Market. By that time, I was drenched in sweat with no cold air and seats to sit. Luckily, the world’s best coping mechanism, in my opinion, food, came along and I was instantly happy again. It lasted shortly only after I found out that there would be another thirty minutes’ walk back to the museums.
Speaking about museums, we went to the Holocaust museum which was my most anticipated event of all times. Honestly, all museums in DC are highly anticipated since it’s all free and who doesn’t like free things but it has a lot of historic events that many people should be educated about. The Holocaust is definitely something everyone in the world should learn about and what other great ways to do so than going to a museum all about it. The stories really inspire me to live happily and help as much people as I can. This is also a reason why I’ve decided to join Chinatown CDC’s youth programs and be as involved as I can to our community. We all share the same values and we all are trying to protect what is our home. Chinatown may not have been where I lived or where my “home” is, but it’s important to me because it is where I grew to be the person I am today through being involved.
