Sorry to say, none of these truly captures what it means to be a Washingtonian. The City gives one great pride and reflexion as well. Knowing that you can walk this City and discover all of America's history, is a major benefit of this great City. Understanding being not truly Free is what most Washingtonians know deep down inside. Going from the Cable cars to the Metro trains is good history, as well as Ben's Chili Bowl! One main thing you learn in Washington is politics 101, after having a Mayor Barry that took on Congress while Congress did everything they could to take him down, and yet he is still shaping DC politics today shows that the power is in the vote. If you sum up the love of Washington then it would be the Unique style in which this Great City has from the buildings to the People, the way we communicate with one another to our own style of music, the arts and last the memories of the past. I love Washington because Washington is me, it lives and breathes deeply inside my soul!
