Inscription.
Paz, paix, shalom, esaalam, are words from several foreign languages spoken in Sheridan-Kalorama, each meaning peace. This representation of a benevolent friar welcomes you in peace. We share, too, works of "America's poet" Walt Whitman, who spent the tumultuous years of the Civil War in Washington, yet expressed an inner serenity in his poem, "Miracles." "As to me I know of nothing else but miracles...the wonderfulness of the sundown, or stars shining so quiet and bright...to me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle, every cubic inch of space a miracle..."
