Behind the star spangled banner and the lights of the fireworks lies the real reason of the Fourth of July. It’s a time for families to get together and spend some well-deserved time with each other. Every year I go with a group, whether it is my family or fiends (who I consider family). I never really go for the fireworks, instead I go for the conversations. As a kid, fireworks scared me; let’s just say I saw my life flash past my eyes more than I would have liked.
Since I don’t really enjoy watching the fireworks I take the time to watch people. It’s interesting to see who goes to the show and how they react. After awhile I notice you see the same people every year.
