LEST WE FORGET
This statue has been the
first vision of liberty
our founding immigrants
saw before disembarking
at Ellis Island over 150 years ago.
A bronze plaque at Liberty's
feet contains these words:
"Give me your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to
breathe free. The wretched refuse
of your teaming shore. Send these,
the homeless, tempest-tossed to me."
Once the foundation of our great country.
Let it be once more!
