Remember the souls who passed this way - immigrants all

I visited Ellis Island for a "hard hat tour" with my photography club and we were able to enter the hospital area not open to the public. I felt the presence of those who came to this country with expectations and dreams of a better life. Those who were ill were kept in this hospital until they recovered and could continue their journey in their new country. Unfortunately, some died here and never fulfilled their dream.
