Lady Liberty Cookies






....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-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"


from The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus.




Hoping you all have a very Happy Independence Day.

To all that came before us and fought with words and arms 
for our independence and freedoms....

We are forever thankful.



Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B
