Statue of Liberty Dedication Day is held every year on October 28th. The Statue of Liberty was gifted from the French to the U.S. in 1886. It came during the centennial of the signing of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. The Statue of Liberty stands as an example of the bond of friendship between the U.S. and France.
The Statue of Liberty may just be the most recognizable American Icon. Individuals traveling around the world seek out to see the statue while in America. May she long stand and represent the hope and dreams of all Americans
On a personal note:
One of my dearest childhood memories is the hometown parade during the 4th of July. Each year a dear friend of my mothers would be part of the parade as she stood straight and tall representing the Statue of Liberty. The crowds of individuals that this touched when the lady recently passed she was remember in her obituary for that very action.
