Spread the Word
A Glimpse of Pennsylvania
In every nation, the importance of its liberty is just as important as saving a life. To be in the state of being free, to have the power to do as pleased, to have the ability to choose, liberty is indeed embedded deep in the very core of them all. So much history has been made in its name. So much great stories. And still being written today.
We see so much of our kind still fighting for their freedom. Many of us are still caged and restrained by the world, most especially by us – human beings; our own kind! We do it to others, we do it to ourselves. We take away their liberty, and we them their give liberty. We can do both, and we did, and we still do.
Because we value so much our achieving of our own liberty, we allow ourselves a material kept so our stories would not just to stay in our memory. We create symbols and icons so we can have that piece of history with us as we go forth in time. Something to remember them by. Here, now, kept in Pennsylvania is an iconic symbol that holds great meaning especially to the people of America. The Liberty Bell.
