Happy Independence Day

On July 4th 1776 the United States adopted the declaration of independence declaring independence from the kingdom of Great Britain.  It is observed as a national holiday within the United States. During the American Revolution, thirteen colonies separated from Great Britain on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain. (information was gleaned from wikipedia.org) It is generally a day of barbecues, family get-togethers, fireworks, parades, and much celebration.

But let us not forget that freedom comes with a price. Thank you to all those who defend this nation through your service in our military!

Hope you enjoy these photos of my version of fireworks. 🙂
