I think America is an idea or person more than a place (though, sadly, often hypocritical both structurally and attitudinally, just like a real person). Deep down, I think she believes…

  • Anyone can become anyone, no matter their origin
  • It is more meaningful to choose for oneself than for the group to be “great” through group choices

  • Open arms to the homeless and downtrodden from around the world
  • The only way to sort out human differences, in the end, is to align to higher power

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Lady Liberty
