Today, I happened to have the opportunity to visit the Statue of Liberty. It was such a surreal experience, that I am including real pictures of the Statue of Liberty, although I am blogging about the Statue of Liberty in Forney. This statue was donated by the American Legion Post 591 of Forney, Texas in December, 1986. It is a miniature exact replica of the Statue of Liberty. This is a life size (average basketball player) statue which proudly stands to greet visitors to Forney or anyone passing down Highway 80 east. The statue is surrounded by the stars and stripes of the United States and Texas flags. Another reminder of the liberty we hold near and dear.
