The film Liberty: Mother of Exiles was playing for a week in theaters. It is currently available on demand on HBO. This thorough exploration of the history of The Statue of Liberty is very pertinent today. The powerful image of Lady Liberty welcoming immigrants resonates with the world. The United States has always represented a beacon of freedom-a hospitable country for dreamers searching for democracy. The movie documents thia timeless gift from France. Lady Liberty would be appalled by the politics of the White House. Let us pray that in the future, she can regain her glory and be proud to be an American symbol.
