'Golden Door' Opens Into Midland .....

According to this post at West Texas Missioner, that 'golden door' that Lady Liberty spoke of opens into the West Texas community of Midland.

The "
Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy.

At the base of the statue is a appears on a plaque with the poem, “The New Colossus,” by poet Emma Lazarus. “The New Colossus,” delivered in the voice of Lady Liberty herself:

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Read Missioner's post to find out how this applies to a community-within-a-community, here in the Tall City.
