    In the Presence of Lady Liberty

    We see her carrying her torch, ever vigilent, ever watchful in the night. Lady Liberty serenely moves about with Grace and Truth coming along side her tall, magnificent frame.

With Grace and Truth holding her up with their strong arms, she cries out, like Paul Revere, riding through the | Read More »
