Since this year has been a really bad year for our country from the bad economy to the Oil Spill in the gulf. I felt it is fitting to have the 4th of July Fireworks be over a Gulf Coast location. They might not right now be effected by oil but I assume their tourism is also down.
Further I was watching Independence Day today and wanted to bring up the quote "..."Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day! "
The fight I am bringing up is not against Aliens but against multiple topics from the combat zones that our Armed Forces are in to the Oil in the gulf to other issues that affect all Mankind..That is why I thought the quote was fitting.
Well hope everyone has a Safe and Happy 4th of July!
