Lady Liberty In The Dark

Lady Liberty In The Dark

Formally called Liberty Enlightening the World, the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of freedom from oppression. Her crown with seven spikes represent the seven seas of the world. The keystone shaped tablet she is holding represents law as being the most essential building block of a nation. The broken shackle and chains by her feet represent freedom from slavery and bondage. Her gait and sandals symbolize progress towards freedom through peace. Her torch is the symbol of enlightenment through which she shows us the path to Liberty.
  • They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. *
  • -- Benjamin Franklin
It seems like some are trying to keep Lady Liberty "in the dark" these days. Both figuratively and literally. In late October, the Statue of Liberty will go dark for a one year for renovations.
