At 11:07 a.m., Project Write surprised visitors on Independence Square with a "flash mob" style reading of the Declaration of Independence. Teens led the crowd by reading phrases in the document. After their initial shock, the visitors echoed back the phrases. Project Write delighted the crowd by distributing hand fans and copies of the Declaration of Independence. As they would say in the 18th century, "huzzah, huzzah, huzzah" for Project Write teens and for visitors at the birthplace of America.
