Independence ‘4th’

4th July 2012

My little piece of  respect for the USA Independence Day Celebrations.

Hope all you American Friends do not mind me putting my recognition and admiration for this day. I was lucky enough to be in the states in 2008 and experienced their celebrations and how they feel about this day. I can also say how myself and family also respect and enjoyed the festivities and the reason.

    • Hey Cassie thanks for stopping by, My family went to States as I wrote and we saw some fantastic Firework displays. Never seen better. Went mainly for my birthday, not realising Independence day a few days later. Got advice from some people and it was fantastic. Thanks again always welcome.

  5. Won’t be a normal 4th here. We are in a severe drought with extremely high temps and high winds. Fireworks are banned in many places here in Kansas. Not in my county though but they should be. In the last couple of days there have been 4 fires in my area. All caused by fireworks.

  11. Thanks for the post, Gerry. It’s a very special day, and I am always reminded how grateful I am to have been born in a free nation. I’ve never had to struggle, fight, pay out tons of money, or even cross an ocean to be free. But how grateful I am to all those generations of men and women who fought, sacrificed, and died to give freedom to all of us who have it — both in Europe and in the U. S.
