Oasis Youth Recap of Spring Break in DC
Oasis Youth Kendra Ezeama says:

"Virginia is one of the most unique places to visit due to its significance it has played in
our countries history. Washington D.C, in particular, holds the history of our country's
road to democracy. I am African American, and for me to visit the African American
memorials and architecture at the African American War Museum really brightened my
eyes on the impact that African Americans, like me, made to achieve freedom.
I was almost brought to tears when we were taken to the Arlington National Cemetery.
We were above the ground of the place famous people who devoted their lives for this
country was buried. And to process that was very scary. To me, when I saw the ever
breathing fire at the cemetery, it represented America's ever burning determination to
be united as one. I feel very privileged to be apart of the Washington D.C trip hosted
by Oasis International."
Oasis Youth Tosin Akinsulire says:

"For our spring break we went to Washington D.C. We went to the white house and we
took pictures in front of it. After going to the white house we went to a museum, and
we learned about how African Americans freed themselves.
After the video a guy came up on the stage with a soldier suit and he told us about how
the soldier’s act at war. He also showed us the equipment they had and what they ate.
When he finished we got to walk around the museum. When we finished we took a
picture outside and then we walked to the state house.
When we got inside we watched a documentary on the state house history. After we
finished we went with a tour guide and she gave us a tour. When the tour was done we
walked all the way to art museum."

Oasis Youth Becky Adewusi says:

"I had a really good time at Washington DC. If it wasn't for Oasis International, I would've
been sleeping and so bored at home. One of our first stops was the National Mall, which
is a national park in downtown Washington, D.C. It is surrounded by museums.
We went to the African American Civil Rights Museum, American History Museum,
American Art Museum, The National Capitol (aka the legislative branch) and many more
places. We also went to the Arlington National Cemetery. It is where people like John F
Kennedy and Navies and Marines from World War one and two were buried. We
couldn't talk at all because it was a sign of respect. We also saw a ceremony called The
Changing of the Guard.
The guard had to protect the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It is touching how they give.
so much respect to someone that they don't even know. At the end of the tour, they
give us a small red flower that says “Honor Remember Explore.”
