|Woodrow Wilson is entombed at Washington Cathedral
in Washington, D.C. We attempted to go there on September 6, 1997. When
we got to the driveway, we were stopped by a guard who asked us what we
We said, "We are going to visit the grave of Woodrow Wilson."
She said, "Not today you not."
We said, "Why not? The sign says your open."
She said, "There is going to be a memorial service for Princess Di."
We begged and pleaded with her, told her how far we came, told her we would be in and out (the service wasn't for another hour,) but she wouldn't hear it. We even tried to bribe her, but to no avail. I still haven't seen his grave. Someday, I'll get there.
Me outside of Washington National Cathedral, so close, yet so far. The grave might as well have been on Mars.

On February 26, 2008, I finally returned to National Cathedral. It was the last gravesite on my quest. As I was walking toward the tomb, I had a strange feeling come over me as I realized that this was the last one, and now I've seen the graves of ALL the dead presidents.
National Cathedral is a beautiful place, and if your in D.C. you have to visit.
