The 4th of July fireworks represent the countless heroes; the countless stars that shined before any of us came to be. They fought for freedom. They loved for freedom’s sake. They shed their blood for the future, for posterity. Fireworks on the 4 of July always make me weep; I know I wouldn’t be here if not for those stars in the sky; the heroes of freedom; the heroes of yesterday and today. Everyone who serves is a heroe; thank you to all men and women in uniform, past, present and future!
