We had some free time this afternoon during our brief Texas trip so we visited the LBJ Library on the UTexas campus. I wasn’t a fan of President Johnson at the time but history has shown he had huge accomplishments in combating poverty, promoting civil rights and saving the environment. The Library provided excellent exhibits: countless photos, videos and audio snippets that really capture the tumultuous events of Johnson’s life, especially his years as President.
The current exhibit of dog tags for all the Texans who died in the Vietnam War is sobering. It’s a terrible reminder of the cost of war.
