Miss America 2014 - Day Four: Day in Philadelphia

Liberty and baseball -- two of the many reasons I'm thankful to be an American girl!

Day Four: Miss America 2014 contestants travel to see Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves Game and the Liberty Bell!

"Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants thereof" (Leviticus 25:10).

These words are inscribed on the Liberty Bell located in Philadelphia's Liberty Bell Center. It is said that the Liberty Bell gets its name from this inscription. Today, it is a reminder of the many liberties enjoyed by the people of this nation. Promise me that you'll remember these liberties today!

It is very moving to think about how each Miss America contestant is a symbol of her own great state, and Miss America -- like the Liberty Bell -- symbolizes our great nation and the ideals upon which our country was founded! It is such an honor and a dream come true to serve as Miss Mississippi 2013! And it is breathtaking to have the opportunity to compete for the job of Miss America!

Next stop, Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves Baseball Game. We had a great time!

Each #MissAmerica contestant was introduced to the crowd!!!

It was so cool to have an Atlanta Braves player from #Mississippi ask ME to sign some items for his little girl, Parker!

And I couldn't start the day with a visit to the Liberty Bell and follow it with a baseball game without having a hotdog!!

6:00 a.m. call times are worth it for #MissAmerica2014 -- what do you think?*

Thanks for keeping up with my #MissAmerica2014 adventures!

*P.S. You understand that "call time" doesn't mean "wake-up" time, right? ;)
