I have chosen a picture of the Statue of Liberty as my positive picture of America. This is because I think Liberty is the most recognised landmark of the USA.
The book she holds has July IV inscribed on it which is the date of the American Declaration of Indpendence. The crown on her head has 7 points and these represent the seven seas and continents of the world.
She welcomes 12 million visitors each year and has become a sign of freedom and hope for not only America but for other countries all over the world.
Given to America by France after the American Revolution she was placed in New York Harbour to giving ships their first view of the new world.
