A friend I Follow at The Confusing Middle….theconfusingmiddle.com…posts prompts every Wednesday and this week is “Independence”. If you haven’t checked out that blog, I highly recommend it. But Go After you read this! After all, I sent you there. That should mean something!
Okay, Now for my thoughts:
Independence Day aka (also known as.. for all you non-English people out there) is the day America celebrates it’s Independence! While I love the idea of the celebration and some of the things we do to celebrate it.. Potlucks,Parades, Festivals and even Store Sales..the one thing I don’t like is the fireworks! There are a few reasons I don’t like them. They’re noisy.. which makes my cats hide and there is no escaping a Migraine attack, But, the main reason is, they are dangerous. I fear fire. If a roof in the park catches fire, it will spread quickly plus, not a year goes by without some idiot burning a finger off, or setting an animal on fire. People go crazy with their “celebrating” with some even shooting guns in the air. Remember, what goes up, must come down, somewhere. Fireworks under controlled settings are okay, although, still loud.
I am proud to be an American and to be free to celebrate it, the way I want. I am just not proud of some of our Americans stupidity.
Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans!
