On the Fourth of July, let's remember the inscription on the base of the Statue of Liberty, offering a haven, a refuge for the burdened and battered.

In the video, Irving Berlin provides the musical setting for this stanza from Emma Lazarus' poem:

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
