This long forgotten poem by Jean-Henri Sadot was set to music by Lionel Bernard and sung by Jerome Pannier, two young citizens of Jean-Henri Sadot's native Normandy, France. They visited the Jean Sadot heritage website, read his memoirs and poems, and Lionel set this poem to his excellent and appropriate music. Other parts were added "stateside" by Vic & Rob Sadot, Dean A. Banks, and Ellen Lebowitz. The song celebrates how the Statue of Liberty represents American democracy and the unique historic friendship between France and the USA. It was a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States and was designated a National Monument on October 15, 1924. Somewhere out in the cosmos Jean-Henri Sadot must be smiling at this Franco-American musical project on his poem even as he winces at the crude remarks of America's first President-Selected by the Supreme Court and his entourage of Neo-Con war profiteers.
