The Statue of Liberty is a powerful symbol recognized around the world.  Last week I learned an amazing fact about this monument in the book:

The Statue's right foot is raised to symbolize her walking away from unjust treatment and slavery.  WOW!  Every person who values freedom needs to read this book and learn the importance of Lady Liberty's right foot.  This powerful message has been under foot since 1886, and thanks to author Dave Eggers, we are aware of "Her Right Foot."





According to travel writer, Sophie Christie, in the article :

The Statue of Liberty, that enduring symbol of freedom, which has welcomed immigrants to the US since it was opened in 1886, has seen a surge in visitors since the election of US president Donald Trump.

Her Right Foot by Dave Eggers is a relevant and much needed reminder of what the Statue of Liberty represents for every person.  If you've read this book, I'd love to hear your thoughts because I had such an immediate and positive reaction.
