Interviewing Westside students that went to Washington D.C.by Brooke Peyton

I interviewed some of the Westside students who attended the 58th Presidential Inauguration and asked them what their favorite and least favorite parts of the trip were. I also asked them that if they could go again, what would be something they would like to do or would need to bring. The following quotes come directly from those that went on the D.C. trip. If you are interested in learning more about the trip to Washington, D.C. you can visit the hashtag #warriorsgotowashington on Instagram.

“My favorite thing was definitely zipping Dakota and Ronnie up in a jacket. My least favorite thing was the Women's March. I’d definitely go back to the memorials again, and I’d bring a polaroid cameraπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ” - Sam H

“My favorite thing about the trip was the gala because we had good food and had a lot of fun. My least favorite thing was the Women's March because it was crazy. If I went back to Washington D.C. I would go to Arlington Cemetery because it had a lot of unique stuff like the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier” - Dylan S

“If I were to do it over I would have a wider choice of food over all, and also have things planned out better. Other than that, it was great. With the inauguration I would have loved to be closer so that I could have really felt the moment. We got to see something in history, and you don't get to see that every day. I feel as though many people didn't like where all we went, so I think we should've got to vote on the places we visited, but yet again we did get to see lots of very cool things. I would definitely do it again, I would bring fancier clothes for the galla, and also food. Lots of food.” - Ronnie M

“I liked Arlington Cemetery, but I didn't like the Women’s March. If I were to go back again, I would bring more money and I would visit more museums.” - Andrew J

“My favorite thing was the gala because of the dancing. My least favorite thing was probably getting up so early every day and the food. If I went again I would like to go to the Smithsonian. The trip was really fun! Spending time with friends like that is just something you might only get to experience once before graduation. It's just a really cool experience. Also getting to see the president get sworn in is honestly a once in a lifetime opportunity. I'm glad I got to experience politics for the first time in my life.” - Mackenzie B

“I really liked the Korean War Memorial, but if I could go back, I'd like to go to the National Air and Space Museum. 19 x 2 = 18” - Craig E

“I liked the Vietnam memorial. If I could go back I would like to go to the Holocaust Museum” - Dakota B

“It was really fun but I wish we would have gone to the Holocaust Museum. My favorite thing was the gala because it was the most fun and the food didn’t taste like cardboard *cough* the first night *cough*. The women’s march was terrifying and I would want to go back to D.C. at a calmer time even though seeing the inauguration was pretty cool. We zipped Dakota buddy and Ronnie in a jacket together and that was the best thing ever. I learned that nineteen times two is eighteen, a very educational experience.” - Kirby Whales (Alli Q)
