Lady Liberty

Nothing reflects more starkly our world today than Lady Liberty in black and white. She was a beacon for my father and my great grandparents. Today's politics make it hard to believe she is still a symbol of hope and the American Dream, but I believe she still stands tall and welcoming as she was built to do. She is the Final Destination for those who desire a better life.
