SB11 Day 3: Brotherly Love.

Philly today.

It's my first time back in Pennsylvania since the family moved away seven years ago.

We visited the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.

It's an interesting feeling to be so close to something you've read about in history books.

I wandered slowly through the Liberty Bell Center, watching people of all ages and races mill around, listening to the faint sound of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech from a video in another room.

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land
unto all the Inhabitants thereof.

I'm not a particularly patriotic person, but you know what?

I felt kinda proud.

I'm glad to be American. I'm glad these guys existed.
