I'd like everyone to take a moment today if you can. Try and see the statute of liberty in your mind. If you're like me-- your heart will swell with pride. And it's ok if it means something else to you. But like it or not The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of our country. And if you didn't know, these words are written beneath it.
Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door! The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island
What does this statue mean if it doesn't mean these words? What does our country mean? This is an actual question.
