Episode 5: Leaving Their Mark

April 22, 2016



It’s there, engraved at the base of the Statue of Liberty, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” George Tarr is one of those who came at age 7, a refugee escaping what he describes as “hell on earth” in Liberia. Today he’s 24 but each time he looks at the Statue of Liberty, he remembers the freedom he found in the USA. Now he feels it’s time for him to leave his mark on the world by helping others.
