The Statue of Liberty has just turned 125 years old.  It is probably the most well known modern statue on Earth.  Given as a gift from France, she has welcomed immigrants from Europe with the words penned by Emma Lazarus:

“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”

May God bless the United States of America, and may this great nation continue to be a beacon of hope and freedom for all.
