Alzheimer's Reading Room
Dotty was born in south Philadelphia in 1916. My father Frank was born in south Philadelphia in 1915, less then ten blocks from Independence Square and the world famous Liberty Bell.
Philly is the home of Independence Square, the Declaration of Independence and the Liberty Bell.
The first public reading of the Declaration of Independence occurred in Independence Square on July 8, 1776. There is a popular myth that the Liberty Bell was wrung to summon all Philadelphians to the reading of the Declaration. This is unlikely, the famous crack in the Liberty Bell had already occurred.
Note: We had 167 people sing Happy Birthday to Dotty. She seemed very pleased and happy. She had a nice big smile.
Then something amazing happened and I will write about that shortly.
