Today was all about Westminster Abbey!  Filled with history, coronations, weddings, tombs, and shrines, the church had an atmosphere of prestige and amazement, the silence was almost overwhelming among all the historic pieces.  Tombs of past kings and queens, shrines dedicated to saints and holy leaders, and a beautiful hallways of knights in armor decorated with their royal coat of arms flags.  Teddy Roosevelt was honored with a marble slab in the corner of the abbey, as well as various poets an authors that had contributed to the literary achievements of England (in the Poet’s Corner).
