Letter: Modern rewrite of Emma Lazarus poem

Edward F Wagner, Clifton Park

Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion


A revision to motto on Statue of Liberty.

(Apologies to Emma Lazarus.)

“Give us your ambitious, your rich, your powerful, your select few yearning to breathe our air. 

The powerful, the blonde-haired, blue-eyed, minorities of your land.

I lift my lamp beside the golden door and welcome them.”

Edward F Wagner
