Inspired by Lady Liberty

When we learned that the crown of the Statue of Liberty would re-open to the public on July 4, we asked for your photos of the American landmark. The crown has been closed since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

 

We expected a big response, but were astounded by the quality of photographs you sent in. It seems that Lady Liberty inspires many of you!

 

thepizzaman found an old photograph from a trip to New York in 1964, naiver07 got creative with a fisheye lens, and New Jersey resident JoyfulGypsy submitted countless gorgeous shots, such as this black-and-white portrait and the statue under a full moon.

 

iReport.com newcomer ecco9494 shared a breathtaking shot of a golden sunset behind the Statue of Liberty. "There is nothing more inspiring than seeing this splendid icon in all its glory," she said.

 

Because of the volume of these stunning images, we tried something new and put them together in a photo mosaic on CNN.com. We'd like to experiment like this again in the future, and we’d love to hear what you think.

 

If you've got big Fourth of July plans, be sure to share them with us. Have a happy and safe holiday weekend!

im sick of hearing about michael jackson, i understand is an icon and he should be respected but it gets old and irratating when every news station is playing the same news. there are more importing things news that we should hear about not just a death of an individual, what about the three other people have died in the past month and the plane crash that killed over a hundred. why are their lives not as significant as this one?

I'm glad 'ON CNN" is covering Michael Jackson to the extent. He certainly deserves it. He was a true American who helped the needy, and especially the children. God Bless his sole.

People complaining can always change the channel.

I don't need to hear about any wars unless it has to do with our troops. People complaining, Go home and help your country.

God Bless America!!!!

A poem for the lady?

-


I  wasn't born in the USA

I was born across the sea

But I fell in love with a beautiful lady

And the USA has grown on me

 

 

And no one can tell me

I don't have the right

To love you MY LADY

As much as I do.

 

 

When you opened your arms

and you show me the light...

You give me the right

To be in love with you.

 

Happy 4th.

The young men are still under Police Custody awaiting a so-called trial. We just want the world to know the injustice being perpetrated by Muslims cabal in Nigeria. One of the soldiers wore a Liard-an Islamic armband charm. These soldiers shot at the door and broke windows louvers before gaining access to house to arrest these Christians young men.
