You guys from Philly will laugh. I once was lucky enough to visit the place. The downtown feels grand, I remember that. Then, they were both proud and humble at the same time to take me to that 'Liberty Bell' they've got over there. They were watching my reaction, I still can remember. At that time - I was an ignorant teen who didn't give a damn - I tried my best to look interested to be polite like a stupid hypocrite, while I didn't take it seriously, like it was just some sort of boring must-see for the dummy, the random tourist. Well, seriously, I'm not kidding, along with the downtown streets and dear old buildings, it's that bell that's yet accurately in my memory. Strangely, today, that so-called Liberty Bell means something to me. I think i understand what the US once meant to many, maybe still means and I'm gald I actually faced that bell, right in my face. It may be a legend bell, it's also a precious symbol and a sign. You know, that's something, though.
I'd just like some clean, stylish and environmentally friendly urban fabric, both respectful of the past and yet innovative, and some happy confident people to live it. That's what I want. So make it happen wherever you are.
