Liberty Enlightening the World

You can read about the re-opening of the Statue of Liberty by

I myself have not been on the island, but back in January 2001, we took the ferry out at around midnight (quite an adventure that would take pages to describe) and saw it, as well as the New York skyline, all lit up. It was an incredible sight. 

An amazing amount of symbolism is represented in the Statue of Liberty, and I love that it's official title is... Liberty Enlightening the World. 

Happy Independence Day!
