This is for all the illegal fireworks my dad spent hours driving to find through the years.
This is for the right to shoot guns and drive giant gas guzzlers.
This is for little children with face paint, balloon hats, and wide eyes.
This is for corn on the cob, watermelon, and hot dogs (of which I now love two of three instead of just one).
But most of all, this is for all those who have sacrificed their time, hearts, and their lives to uphold the name of freedom and liberty in this incredible country we call America.
Happy Independence Day (...yesterday...)
