And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Yes, 4th of July is finally here! This year the lovely holiday has granted us with a lovely mid-week break to relax, drink and party in honor of our country. Just this week, the efforts of our Founding Fathers to construct a balanced government went into action. The executive proposal for Health Care was approved by the judicial branch — we will cheers to that.

So if you’re unable to catch a fireworks show on Wednesday, or if you can never get enough of the lights and heart pounding booms, we’ve assembled a gallery of fireworks that won’t fade away into the night.
