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.


  1. The thoughts of Emma Lazarus gives me chills, Nellie. The symbol of our freedom standing proudly in the harbor welcoming all to a new life. ♥

  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

  3. Hello, Nellie!
    I've learned a lot about your Statue of Liberty, and these words from Emma Lazarus's poem made me to think about future.
    Have a nice week!

  4. The French gave us a wonderful gift when they gave us the Statue of Liberty, and Ms. Lazarus' poem is a perfect fit! Have a terrific Tuesday, Sister! Love you!

  5. Amen- yes- America has taken them all! What a great piece of prose she wrote! Have a wonderful week- xo Diana
