My most memorable moment at the WAG cama on the last day of the Norman Rockwell Exhibition. As we entered the gallery we stopped to admire the barbershop quartet who were entertaining the crowd. One little boy, about 14 months, was especially intrigued by this and kept running up to them and running back to mum. She told him to go and stand in front of the group, which he did. He then started to sway and dance and the quartet began playing up to him. As the quartet finished he led the applause with great delight. A real Norman Rockwell moment.
We continued around the gallery admiring the covers, some of which we know and others we didn't. We then came around a corner and came face to face with the Four Freedoms display. I was born in London, England in 1938. The final panel, "Freedom from Fear" held special meaning for me.
May the little boy in the gallery never experience what I did in the first few years of my life.
