The military helicopter was hovering over the Statue of Liberty and everyone was snapping pictures at a wild pace. There were digital cameras, cell phones, polaroids held by tweens, and a few oldsters using a Brownie. This excursion was the last of its kind before the quarantine.
The historical site was one of two remaining in the United States this day. Apparently during the worst of the Coronavirus in 2021, armed citizens of all ethnic groups had torn down every statue, plaque, memorial and reference to the country’s history. The only reason Miss Liberty remained was the previous destruction of all vehicles used on water to ensure no US citizen traveled beyond the contiguous borders.
The other remaining site was the heavily armed and walled-off White House where the diseased body of the last president remains instate.
