That the words below meant something the most Americans.

“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!”

By many indications, that time is gone forever.

I think it still does to "most" Americans.
It does to me.

Every death before his time who is a friend, is sad, It's worse when it's two. Sorry but, going by your post, both went quickly and from my perspective a blessing.

I've been off medically for 5 yrs, nothing serious individually but, collectively, it sucks. And my docs keep me from slumping in my chair, tweak this or that proscribe more pills or less etc. No, no pain, just deteriorating a bit faster. We all are. I'm actually not complaining but, I'd love to die in my sleep given an option.

Nice sentiment Jamie, but wrong thread.
