I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. "

Independence Day

Last night two friends invited me to go with them to the next town to watch fireworks. We parked in industrial area, got chairs out of the car, and sat and visited till the fireworks began. Hundreds of people were doing the same. Families had come earlier and eaten. The family next to us was playing cards. It was like being at a campground, one of my favorite things to do.

Fireworks began at 10:00, lasted about a half hour. They were humongous. We had perfect seats for the view of city skyline and the wonderful fireworks display.

Afterwards we drove into town for ice cream sundaes!

Whatever you have planned for today or end up doing on this fourth of July, stop for a moment and say a prayer of thanks for our freedom as a country and count yourself among the people with the wisdom to see the need to protect and preserve this planet.

I know that you all celebrate anyway, but take a quick look at our government and give thanks again that you got away! :-)

That sounds like such a fun way to spend the holiday! Glad you had such a good time! I skipped any fireworks displays... I had to work the next day. But I still enjoyed the day.
