The New Colossus …… Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, …… her name - Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command ………. "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!" Emma Lazarus, 1883
