50th Anniversary R.F.K. Celebration

John and I were invited by the Department of Justice to attend the 50th Anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy's swearing in. The ceremony took place in the great hall of the R.F.K. Main Justice building. There were a lot of very interesting and powerful people at the ceremony, including many members of the Kennedy family. After the ceremony, John and I were walking down a flight of stairs and when we turned a corner, a burly Secret Service guard told us to stand back against the wall. A few feet behind him stood Eric Holder, the U.S. Attorney General. Mr. Holder was very friendly and shook our hands and asked us about our internships. He jokingly accused us of not working hard enough! It was very cool and somewhat intimidating experience
