News: Liberty Under Construction

I heard earlier today that the Statue of Liberty will be shut down for a year while it undergoes construction. For those planning a visit, make it to New York by Oct. 28th to see it before the closing. I found this to be interesting and fitting with the state of our country.

The Statue of Liberty stands tall as a symbol of our great country. The fact that this monument is under construction, just as our country is going through a huge reconstruction of our spending and taxing habits, seemed fitting. Unfortunately I have never been able to visit New York or the Statue of Liberty. I will have to plan a visit soon after the construction is finished. At that point, maybe our country will be on the right path towards rebuilding for our future as well!
