Saved by the Bell
My father was stationed on the island of Corsica in World War II. His unit flew dangerous bomber missions, and most planes never made it back to base. A local woman told my father to get a replica of the Bell of Capri for good luck. On his next no-fly day, he got a small brass bell to put in his buttonhole.
He truly believed it got him home alive, and later, he’d give it to us children when something important was happening. He gave it to me on my first opening night in professional theater, and told me to keep it. Years later, when Dad was dying in the hospital, I brought him the bell. He said, “I think I never really knew my father,” maybe remembering all those years spent away from home in the war. I wear the bell on a chain and never take it off until someone in my family needs a little good luck. Amy Murphy-DeMeo, Ormond Beach, Fla.
