I have been struggling with the dark cloud that has been overcast on our country during this past year. I was also deeply disturbed with the election fiasco, and all of the negativity in social media. I needed to take a step back, disconnect and regroup.
As an adult, I was overwhelmed and really sad. I could only imagine how a child could feel. Hopeless, sad, and uncertain of their future. Feeling harassed, and bullied by their peers by children just like them.
I find it hard to believe that in this year 2016, our children are literally terrified to go to school, to step out of the safety of their homes, and of what will happen to them and their families.
Yet during this time, I am reminded that after every storm the sun always comes out and shines upon us.

You guys will never guess where this Statue of Liberty is located at, and no it's not Ellis Island! Nope! And this is not the real statue either. It's actually a replica of our beautiful Lady of Liberty! Did you know there are hundreds of replicas across the world? Argentina, Peru, United Kingdom, France, Israel, Japan, and many more countries. 🌏 Now more than ever I don't take lightly what she represents. She represents friendship between nations and freedom from oppression. Before air travel, ships would sail into New York Harbor and Lady Liberty would welcome their passengers, many of them being immigrants traveling to the United States for the first time. Lady Liberty is one of the first sites when sailing into the harbor, and she is symbolic of freedom. ⛵ Want to know where this replica is located? It's in Puerto Rico! Yes, my beautiful li'l island, and this replica is located in a historical area in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. 💕 There's also an engraving on the base (can't see in this picture) that reads: "Del Pueblo, Por El Pueblo y Para El Pueblo." (Of the people, from the people and for the people). . . . . . . . . #replicastatueofliberty #statueofliberty #ladyliberty #estatudadelalibertad #arecibo #puertorico #viajarconniños #viajarconpeques #viajarenfamilia #travel #mkbkids #familytravel #exploretheworld #kids #purejoy #wanderlust #instatravel #travelwithkids
