West Seattle scene: Poem excerpt @ Alki Statue of Liberty


Thanks to DN for the photo: The most-quoted lines of the poem that graces a plaque at the Statue of Liberty have been placed at the base of her little sister on Alki Beach. The poem is “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus; you can read it in full on the Statue of Liberty National Monument website.

    Here, here!

    These are the times for patriots to stand up and defend our country’s values. We will not be silent nor will we be cowered.

    Hello! I saw this at the statue, and was also moved. I’ve made an inquiry to the Seattle Parks Department about possibly using crowd-funding to have a plaque placed with the entirety of the poem on it. They said it would start with a proposal that would provide specifics on materials and location. Any thoughts? Interest?

Sorry, comment time is over.
