The Land of the Free

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!

    Beautiful and so needed today. Let us never forget the light that welcomed our ancestors and the American spirit that continues to illuminate and guide future generations to our shores.

    What an inspiration. I’m afraid I’ve taken Lady Liberty for granted most of my life. No more! Thank you, Ellen, for showing her in her full majesty.
