he Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor has greeted more than 17 million immigrants, raising their hopes and dreams as high as she holds her burning torch against the sky. She is an impressive structure and an awesome sight. One hundred two feet tall, the Statue of Liberty stands proudly on a 150-foot pedestal. The torch and flame were the first part of this statue to reach the United States from Paris, France, by way of Philadelphia, PA. The Statue of Liberty herself is, you might say, an immigrant – she is Franco-American! The Statue of Liberty was designed by the French sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi.

Forgive me while I be sick. No wonder Americans have a heightened sense of self being. They are spoon fed that at K12
"We have our struggles, but America is still a living, growing nation that continues to strive for liberty and justice for all"
OOH RAAH!!! American's are not taught the problems with their country, they are not taught anything other than how great their country is. This is quite worrying, I cannot understand why no one in any sense of power cannot see this and want to change America. It is falling apart and that starts in schools, Hopefully one day this will change, however that is unlikely. Americans are so used to being the best country they need to work out that they have no god given right and they have to change otherwise America as we know it will die. I remember Americans coming to my school in France... They could do academic work just fine, they could write and do maths. But they were idiots they had no idea, What is worse I don't know what they had no idea about, they just seemed to be a little slow, if that is politically correct... However there are some nice sides to this, here's a song if you have read all this you will have the next 2 catch ups to read so why not treat yourself to a song before you listen to more rantings by me.
