Fireworks on the Piscatiqua River - Portsmouth, NH

After a warm summer day filled with hot dogs and watermelon, parades and performances; Americans gather together en mass along lakeside beaches, municipal sports fields and picturesque river fronts in anxious anticipation of the booming barrage to come. As the last tendrils of daylight blend into the growing blue-black expanse of twilight, a single, solitary flare blazes a vertical trail into the sky, signaling the start of the fireworks display.

Multiplied across our country, from the rugged shores of Maine to the golden cliffs of California, and 10,000 places in-between, Americans gather on Independence Day, under the glow of fireworks, to celebrate our country’s sacred principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And you know what? It doesn’t matter if you’re democrat or republican, jock or nerd, millionaire playboy or middle-class worker – all gather together for a few moments of awe and wonder beneath the pyrotechnic blossoms.
