When Lady Liberty Cried

The day dawned just like all of the others; on that faithful day. Lady Liberty stood in the bay, greeting passing boats and travelers, just like she has done since the beginning days. Then, on September 11th in the year 2001 at 8:45AM a building was struck in the land that she has always protected. Terrorists had hit America hard in the face. Lady Liberty began crying for all of the pain her proud city was in. Many people died on that faithful day and the pain is still stinging the air. The mighty Lady Liberty symbolizes freedom for the entire world. Her torch, that is always burning, represents liberty. On her tablet, is inscribed the date on which America gained its independence. Her crown has seven rays, which symbolize the seven seas and continents. Lady Liberty is still crying; crying for her people who have to fight. For the people who had to leave behind their loved ones when they marched off to war. She has cried through all the wars past. Her tears are pouring out of her as America now enters the war on terrorism. Why Lady Liberty wonders do people have to fight one another? Why can on one live in peace and harmony?
