To The Editor:

“The United States of America”

The United States of America, no more powerful words ever written or said.

A nation born of revolution and framed and formed by our founding fathers.

Meaningful words such as: Freedom, Liberty and Justice still prevail, ringing out loud and clear…as the American symbol of independence, The Liberty Bell, did in our founders yesteryear.

Lady liberty stands ever vigilant, high upon her pedestal overlooking the harbor, adorned in her flowing robe, crown and flaming torch and arm raised aloft in her hand…America, just like our Lady Liberty, has never denied the American dream and gift of asylum to those seeking a better life in this great land, for when it comes Freedom and Liberty Americans and America does not or never will deny or look the other way, nor bury their heads in the sand.

America offers all a refuge and haven to the oppressed and downtrodden masses of the world for, it does not make a difference to this great nation and people if you’re rich, poor, ethnicity, or language that one speaks or continent you’re from, the only thing we ask is your allegiance and love of America as you follow the beam of light that that Lady Liberty shines along the path that leads to her welcoming front door.
