Lady Liberty how we have betrayed her and a call to action

Lady Liberty –  She stands proudly at the entrance to our shores. Loudly proclaiming for all to hear

“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!”

This week we betrayed her as we did in 1939 when we closed our doors to jewish refugees resulting in their deaths in Hitlers Concentration Camps.

The fear mongering of this administration is abhorrent. If we want to conduct extreme vetting on those who are at most risk to our safety we would be signing orders to vet white American Citizen males 18-28.

As Nikki Haley threatened at the UN this week that they are “taking names” of those in UN who don’t have their backs”

We are taking names! Of all Senators and Congressman who stay silent while White House puts in place bans on our rights, our religious freedoms, on refugees.

We are taking names on Corporations who stand silent. Uber saw that quickly last night when they did not stand with the strike of NYC taxi.

This is not the time for cowardice. Our ancestors, our grandparents, the women before us fought, sacrificed, gave their lives for our freedom.

We owe it to them and to our children and grandchildren now to stand together to protect the rights those before us fought to defend.

This is a crisis of conscience. Any little thing, calling your Congressional representative, sending an email a tweet. Sharing the call to action on your social media.  We all have busy lives…but there are many things you can do that take minimal time.  I promise you the pride you will feel afterward is fabulous.

It’s our turn to honor Lady Liberty’s promise and those who fought before us to pick up the mantle.
