THE STATUE OF LIBERTY - A SYMBOL OF LIBERTY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD - AN IDEA THAT WAS BROUGHT TO FRUITION - BY A FRENCHMAN - EDOUARD DE LABOULAYE - THE SCULPTOR AUGUSTE BARTHOLDI.








The Statue of Liberty -
symbol of Liberty throughout the world.

In 1865 a Frenchman named Edouard De Laboulaye came up with an idea - to commemorate freedom in America and promote it in France.

Edouard envisioned a symbol - that worldwide would signified the most important value we humans treasure - our FREEDOM.

Loaboulaye figured out it was a nice way to honor the alliance between the United States and France - the role of these two Nations - during the American Revolution.

Sculptor Aguste Bartholdi began designing " Liberty Enlightening the World " in 1870.

The Statue packed in 214 shipping crates - arrived on site in New York but could not be a assembled until the pedestal was completed and unveiled on October 28, 1886.

Lady Liberty has stood as a symbol of freedom worldwide ever since.

True FREEDOM shuns injustice, shuns discrimination, does not consider some people less human - and all this and more - daily in our lives - we must consider - and confront those that foster - divisiveness.

Today we try to celebrate the Independence of our Nation - while millions were already free - more, when this Nation - was named Turtle Island. 

All  enjoyed that FREEDOM for 15,000 years - indigenous people.

So how does this date July 4, 1776 - figure out in this equation.

This fake evolution  so called FREEDOM DAY - July 4 - or is it LICENSE - practiced in the name of FREEDOM.

Abuse of FREEDOM is LICENSE.

It is simply amusing to see people enjoy " fireworks ".






In recent years " drones painting design in the sky " - commemorating - our celebrations of some events - including July 4.

It tickles us a little - but far from that - if there is no substance viable and sustainable - more signifying tenacity and fortitude  - embracing humanity and stellar values - more, the time involved to subscribe to such notions and vague celebrations - our actions need to be evaluated.

We human adore symbols - many a time - failing to analyze what the symbols truly mean - we love to see the symbols,  touching them makes us feel better  - but - only for a just a fleeting - moment.

Then when the mist passes away - we have to deal with reality.




Indigenous People Lived on Turtle Island
for over 15, 000 - carbon dated -
remains and artifacts.


Today we have in the White House an egoistical maniac - who purports to know most everything - making a fool of himself.

Our Constitution does not define how FREE the Blacks are in our Nation.

Read this article to know more - but truly read the Constitution - that muddies the water - when it come to how FREE are Black - after Blacks shedding their sweat and blood for the United States of America:

The last amendment done on the issue - does not speak to FREEDOM and more equal rights.

It is the same with the Native Americans - the treaties are bold to say - that a treaty has been signed - with the Native Americans - who are NOT citizens.

Amendments made in later years issuing passports and Identification Papers - just so that Native Americans can serve and fight for our Nation.

Blacks fought in the many wars - and came home - only to considered Second Class Citizens.






Indigenous People were born Free -
every single day - is Freedom Day -
much like the Buffalo roams free -
the birds fly have their freedom - and the fish swim free
that is until the strangers came and tried 
to brain wash the indigenous people - Go Figure!
