Artist's Description

To many people today…the 4th of July … is just another day.
Sadly that is how many are starting to feel about our National Holidays.

I overheard a couple arguing in the grocery store the other day… he didn’t want to go watch the fireworks…that it was dumb.
I didn’t mean to seem like I was listening to their spat, and I am not going to tell you their age… but she turned, looked over to me… there was this iron resolve in her eyes and a look on her face that I knew what was on the way.
I smiled at her …then backed up my cart “cuz” I knew what was going to proceeded …
Let Her RIP Lady! I thought as I gazed blankly at the Club Crackers.

It is not Dumb …I won’t go into what the fellow in the store had to listen to… this is my opinion now…

I feel that these National Holidays are some of the last things that bring people together … no matter what political side, the church you walk into, the color of your skin or the heritage of your family.
Just sitting on the hood of your truck, unfolding the lawn chairs or sitting on your horse… there is the gathering of people, the anticipation of the event… the first firework soaring up in the air and for the next 15 minutes we are all joined together in a celebration.
Take the 20 or so minutes on the night of the 4th and if nothing else just Thank God you are standing on American Soil …that there really are thousands and thousands of people out there fighting and taking baths with baby-wipes in unspeakable conditions to preserve our rights and freedoms.

I’ll get off my soapbox now …The couple in the store I have no doubt, will find their spot to watch the Fireworks …our home sets up in the foothills of the desert Virgin Mountans, so we will look down on all three resorts and their fireworks productions.
Hope you all celebrate (in your own way) these fleeting minutes on this 4th day of July.
Thanks for viewing my photography
