Tonight the Anacostia Watershed Society and the Sierra Club hosted Ward 7 residents on a evening boat tour of the Anacostia River. I owe her an apology. I called her ugly and disgusting. I told her she would never amount to another other than a mud muck.
But tonight.... I saw her inner beauty. I saw the way the sun kissed her as he said goodbye for the night. I saw egrets (birds) and herons (another kind of bird) gently glide across her surface. What a beautiful river.
