The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Sometimes we all need a reminder!

Statue of Liberty National Monument - Emma Lazarus’ Famous Poem

 

Sometimes we all need a reminder!

 

A poem by Emma Lazarus is graven on a tablet within the pedestal on which the statue stands that welcomes “tired” and “poor” immigrants of all sorts to America.

 

 

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!"
