In honor of Independence Day, may I share a portion of the poem "The New Colossus"? It was written by Emma Lazarus in 1883 and appears on The Statue of Liberty.
"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-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
That is beautiful.
