Here in the USA, we celebrated the 4th of July this past weekend. Holiday celebrations are always nostalgic for me. All the traditional sights, sounds, decorations and foods bring back memories of years past.
As a kid, I never liked sparklers, they scared me! My catastrophic thinking started a long time ago…! Luckily, my own kids seem to experience the childhood joy normally associated with waving around a flaming stick of fire in the air.
The new neighbors went all out with a neighborhood fireworks show. They were very kind to invite us, the new family on the block. We had a wonderful time meeting everyone who lives nearby, playing in the street and celebrating our community and our country.
I found a great YouTube video about the Revolutionary War, the Star-Spangled Banner, and Frances Scott Key that is perfect for the 4th of July. If you’re interested in American history, check out this link:
We hope you are able to do something to celebrate your country, city, community, and neighborhood sometime soon! May God bless you and keep you.
