Give Me Your Poor, Your Tired, Your Huddled Masses, Yearning To Breathe Free...

Does the title of this post sound familiar? It should. It's from the inscription on the Statue of Liberty. So, with that in mind, I share with you this wonderful quote from Marilyn Chandler McEntyre, The Christian Left (Click directly on the quote to bring up a larger viewing):

"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-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

(From the poem at the Statue of Liberty by Emma Lazarus)
