High Risk Job

When you think about jobs that come with an element of danger, you would usually think of a police officer, firemen or perhaps a lumberjack. Statistically there is a job that has a higher occupational hazard than any of the ones just mentioned, and that job is President of the United States!

The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence bearing the timeless message “Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof” as well as a significant crack. The crack isn’t the only thing that’s wrong with the bell though, the spelling of the location it was cast, and still resides in today, is missing an N so it reads “Pensylvania” not Pennsylvania.
