Statue of Liberty
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Patrick woke up early this beautiful summer morning. Today was a very special day. He had waited for it to come for a long time.
2     Today Patrick's family was going to New York City. They would visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Patrick ate a quick breakfast with his family. Then he and his sister, his parents, and his grandfather got into the car.
3     Patrick's family lived in Stony Point. It was a small town outside New York City. His father commuted into the large city each weekday to work. Patrick didn't get the chance quite that often. Patrick's family drove down the Palisades Parkway and over the George Washington Bridge. They made their way to Battery Park in New York City. They parked their car in a parking garage and got in line for the ferry.
4     Patrick's family bought tickets for the Circle Line Statue of Liberty Ferry. They boarded the ferry at 9 a.m. The trip to Liberty Island where the famous statue stands took 15 minutes.
5     Patrick felt very patriotic as he gazed at the spectacular Statue of Liberty. He learned that the formal name of the statue is "Liberty Enlightening the World." The statue is a woman escaping chains that stand for tyranny, or the ruling of people in a cruel way. She is holding a torch that stands for liberty in her right hand. The tablet her left hand holds bears the date July 4, 1776. She is wearing a crown with seven rays representing the seven seas and continents. She is dressed in flowing robes.
