Sweet land of liberty

Statue of Liberty

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
Nearly every day, I walk past the little cottage with this statue tucked away in the corner. In the daylight, the statue almost disappears into the background, and the flowers and other decorations grab all the attention.

But at night! I rarely go by at night, so I was almost startled tonight when I drove by and saw Lady Liberty aglow.
