Honk Hoooooonk, Honk HONK!! The sound of deafening horns whiz by you as you dash across a busy street. You make your way through crowds of suits and briefcases. In the distance you see a splash of green. Your heart starts pounding as you realize your destination is in sight. A few more blocks and you enter your haven. The smell of fresh cut grass fills your nostrils as you walk past the welcoming sign that reads: Central Park.
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This quote is most recognizable from The Statue of Liberty. She is a statue that stands tall and strong, welcoming immigrants from across the sea. Can you imagine being aboard an old, haggard ship for weeks at a time? The crashing waves causing nausea and discomfort until you finally spot something in the distance. There is beautiful statue of a woman holding a torch out to the lost. You have finally made it to your new home, America.
