Before the people come, before the fog lifts, see, the sun is just over the horizon. Before the laughter, the fun, the excitement. Before the colors come out and the flames shoot up. Before the crowd files in and balloons fill the air. There is a brief moment of peace. I caught my breath, and snapped! Then I thanked the good Lord for letting me be there!
