The formal name for the Statue of Liberty is Liberty Enlightening the World. The most familiar lines from The New Colossus inscribed on a bronze plaque at the base of statue reads: 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!
Does this statue symbolize what makes America great? Why or why not?
