Hannah and I have spent the rare week away from Downeast Maine visiting my folks in Pennsylvania. I’ve tried to add a few “educational” excursions to our trip that wouldn’t totally bore a 14-year-old. Today’s outing was to Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. I seem to recall I was about her age when I first toured these landmarks. There’s no question that I was more deeply affected by the experience today than I was as a teen. Life experience gives a profound understanding of and appreciation for the concepts of liberty and independence!
