For Tuesday....


In 1883, American poet Emma Lazarus wrote "The New Colossus." Following are some of the words from that poem....

      "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!"

These words are inscribed on a bronze plaque placed in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. 

Words for thought for today.

  2. Hi Nellie, I love the lady Liberty. I saw the safety pin post. One of the ladies at our classmate brunch wore one and told us it's meaning. :):) Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
