TED-Ed shows us this amazing animated poem about the Statue of Liberty. The poem was written in 1883 by the famous author Emma Lazarus.

The iconic statue has become a symbol of openness and reflects America’s history of immigration. The statue was the first thing lots of immigrants saw when they came to the US by boat. For them, it was their first glimpse of their new life in the United States. America is often referred to as a “country of immigrants”, as the influx of immigration into America was one of the main reasons why it was able to prosper so much since it was first founded.

In this poem, the author looks at the symbolism of the statue and how it stands as a beacon of American values. The US was founded as a place that was open to all people. It was seen as the land of opportunity, looking to give people from tough backgrounds a better life. In a divided world, this poem and message is even more important than ever, as we look back on what the statue symbolises and the values that it instills in Americans across the country.
