Hey there, Freedom students!  Today, I have a great English quote from the magician Harry Houdini.

Harry Houdini was born in Budapest today, March 24, in 1874.  He is well known for his great illusions and stunts.  He performed many sensational escapes from chains, water, and even being buried alive!  One of his most famous tricks was when he was suspended upside down in a tank full of water.  He then managed to escape his chains and survive!  Wow!

Houdini continued to perform until his death in 1926.  He is held as one of the greatest magicians in the world.  Many magicians today credit him as their inspiration.
