City of brotherly love


Free hugs in the city of brotherly love / Walnut Street at Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, PA / Jan. 2008

William Penn gave Philadelphia its name -- from the greek word for  “brotherly love” (Φιλαδέλφεια).

“By creating Pennsylvania, Penn set an enormously important example for liberty. He showed that people who are courageous enough, persistent enough, and resourceful enough can live free.  ...  He showed how individuals of different races and religions can live together peacefully when they mind their own business. He affirmed the resilient optimism of free people.”
