This piece started with the vintage Lady Liberty embroidery that I found at a thrift store.  I combined it with the quote from Emma Lazarus which appears at the base of the Statue of Liberty and the phrase which has become a rallying cry for the resistance movement.  I fervently hope that it will be true that liberty persists, America persists and that our nation will stay true to its fundamental ideals of welcoming refugees and immigrants with open arms.
