For me, the Torch of Liberty shines brighter than all the neon on Time Square. That is unnatural light, made by Madison Avenue marketeers.
But where the glow of that light no longer reaches is to Wall Street. They built up the wall to block out all light. But it can still shine down on them from above.
And in the umbra, lies our Nation’s Capital. Not a shred of light can reach them there. They forget that fire can be shared, and with it new lights made.
If we turn the Statue around, might not Liberty look upon us once again? Perhaps on the day when millions of us are gathered to meet ‘her’ gaze, with torches in hand, ready to let it shine.
