Millions visit our nation’s capital every year to learn about this country’s history. But just beyond the monuments, a city lies crumbling.
Every day we see images of Washington, DC on TV. Leaders cast the vision for America’s future. Historians study and preserve her past. Landmarks and modern museums dot tourist maps, offering millions of citizens and foreign visitors alike a glimpse into what makes America unique.
If these sightseers looked just beyond the monuments, though, they would discover a desperate city plagued by poverty, substance abuse, and crime.
