Art: The Statue of Liberty by Artist Theodora Demetriades
For the millions of people who sought liberty in America the emblem that must be emblazoned in their hearts The Grand Old Lady...The STATue of Liberty ! Here is the poem written by Emma Lazarus that is on a dedication plaque at the site The New Colossus Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she With silent lips. "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-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" —Emma Lazarus, 1883
