The Statue of Liberty’s crown re-opened today after being closed by the September 11th attacks nearly eight years ago.

The base, pedestal and outdoor observation deck re-opened in 2004, but the crown remained off-limits. (The torch has been closed since 1916 when it was damaged by a saboteur's bomb.)

So while you’re grilling out and watching fireworks, chalk one up for personal freedom being restored, and remember how lucky we are to live in this great country.
