“Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” These profound words [come from the Bible] but also adorn the Liberty Bell. I grew up in Cape May, New Jersey–nowhere near The Real Housewives. My second grade teacher, Miss Church, took our class on a field trip to the Liberty Bell in Philly. I was fascinated by history and stories [and cheesesteaks], as most of us are, and the crack in the Bell has its own story. It represents freedom. It represents hope. The crack on the Bell’s bosom makes it real.
