Jonathan's WDC/NYC School Trip

Hello, my name is Jonathan Lee,  and I am in the 7th grade. I love history and I love America. My school is taking us on a trip of a lifetime next summer to Washington D.C. and New York City. My mom is so paranoid about me going by myself, but luckily some of her teacher friends and even my grandma and dad have convinced her to let me go on the trip, and I am so excited about it!

The trip costs just under $3000, and I would greatly appreciate your prayers and if you could help  me fund it. I am such a history buff, and it all started in 4th Grade with a unit on Texas History, more specifically, the Alamo. My 4th Grade teacher was so awesome about teaching me the importance of history and I fell in love with it. 

In WDC we are going to visit the Arlington national Cemetery, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Mount Vernon, the Washington Monument, Smithsonian Institute, Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, MLK Memorial, Ford's Theater and Petersen House, the White House, National Archives, World War II Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, Pentagon Memorial, and tour the Capitol Hill Grounds. Then in NYC we will be visiting Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Wall Street and the Financial District, National 9/11 Memorial, take a Fifth Avenue Walk, and even go see a Broadway Show! 

Did I mention I am all about the military as well? I have my heart set on studying at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, and then going on to join the United States Marine Corps, like my uncle. We have these great talks about history and the Corps, and how this trip will allow me to soak in more of America's history and how we were involved in so many aspects of the world. 

I am incredibly excited about this trip and am so hopeful I can learn so much more about who I am as an American and how I can impact the world when I grow up. 

Thank you so much for reading my story, and I pray for blessings for all of you! 

Love, Jonathan
