FREEDOM = "LIVING TO THE FULLEST "
                                             
 - Noel | Artist
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!

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame is the imprisoned lightning,
And her name, Mother of Exiles.
From her beacon-hand glows world-wide welcome;
Her mild eyes command the air-bridged harbor
That twin cities frame.
"Keep, Ancient Lands, your storied pomp!"
Cries she with silent lips.

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!

What does FREEDOM mean to you?
by Herb Sosa

Freedom mean a lot of different things to each of us. Some define it by politics, others
by personal liberties & rights.  Still others use it as a tool of control, manipulation and
oppression.  As we celebrate the 234th birthday of the United States of America, many
of you shared YOUR ideas on Freedom -

However you choose to celebrate FREEDOM
this July 4th, do it with equality and justice
for ALL...  For me, FREEDOM is the right to live,
love & defend that which I believe to be true,
without ever depriving others of their right to
the same.

What does Freedom mean to me? Freedom to me means "democracy"
in a classical Greek sense, to live life without fear and free of
hate-mongers.

Freedom to me means to have the privilege of exercising the
right to be free to act, move, think and live in the manner I
choose, while respecting the rights of others to do the same
without FEAR of harm; whether it be physical, moral or material.
