After lunch we went to the graveyard where Ben Franklin is buried.
People throw pennies onto his grave because he coined the term (no pun intended): "A penny saved is a penny earned."
There are several other signers of the Declaration of Independence buried there as well.
This tombstone especially got to me... not only are the husband and wife buried here but ELEVEN of their children who died from Yellow Fever. They all passed away before their parents. I just can't imagine. Thank God for modern medicine!
Part 2 coming later today... watch for it!
