Memorial Memory

I visited the Statue of Liberty two times already, but I have never gone inside the memorial. I have only seen it from afar on a ferry. This copper statue has always been taught to me as a child as a gift from France to the United States. I know that it represents freedom, democracy, and equality in the United States. It represents hope for immigrants from other countries who want to start a new life. These immigrants included my parents. They both have told me about their stories of how they started from nothing to this life we live now. So to me, the Statue of Liberty is not only a representation of pride to be part of the United States but also a representation of the new life that can start here in America.

This memorial was successful for me because it had some historical meaning and representation. In this case, the statue represents millions of hopes for immigrants who first entered this nation.
