i want to wish everybody a safe and happy july 4th! :)
7/2/2003 10:50:54 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

seeing the library is going to be closed tomorrow and friday, on account of the july 4th holiday, i want to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a very happy and safe independence day! :)
i don't have a computer at home, so this is why i come here to our local library here in burleson, texas, to do my writings. but tomorrow is thursday, and the library is closed anyways on thursdays, and friday, the library will be closed, due in part to the fourth of july holiday; so i won't get the opportunity to wish y'all a very safe and happy fourth of july! so this is why i am doing this now, as part of my third blog.

i will be off work that day (YAHOO!!! :) ), requested off that day, as i have plans (to see the parade and also see the fireworks, amongst other things); so i will probably be spending most of that day relaxing once the parade is overwith until the evening, when karla and i will go with friends to see the fireworks at our city's annual celebration of the fourth of july. shall be fun; we are really looking forward to seeing the parade and the fireworks! that is the best part of the holiday; celebrating our freedom as americans, and also seeing the fireworks! i have always loved fireworks, ever since i was a little kid; and i still love them today! there is nothing more exciting than the earth-shattering "BOOMM!" and the sudden, multicolored bursts of light as they light up the night sky! very exciting, and thrilling, all at the same time; and also feeling pride and joy in my heart at the thought of being an american and living in a nation that is free!

i have always loved the fourth of july; and i remember many a memorable holiday, such as the time we were ten years old and had a flood that night. we saw the fireworks, but lightning hit the display, and you never saw a faster display in all your life! *KA-BBOOOOOOMMMMMMMM!* there went the beginning, middle, and the finale, ALL AT ONCE! it scared the hell out of all of us, and we got so scared, we fell off the bleachers! we then got home, and we had round after round of storms; and we had serious flooding back home in ohio that year. we ended up with something like 9-14" of rain, and the further north one went, the worse the flooding got. we were supposed to go to our uncles' house for fourth of july, but we never made it farther than just outside of mansfield, where we lived. it was really bad; and a few times, i thought the water was gonna' pull our car away.

another fourth of july i remember was 1976, our country's 200th birthday, our bicentennial. i remember seeing the tall ships and all the other huge celebrations on television that day, and it was neat. we then saw the fireworks in town, and they were really awesome; really spectacular, more so then in other years.

each fourth of july has been memorable, and this is why i enjoy the holiday as well as i do. it is a day to spend wiht family and friends, and also to go out of town and celebrate our freedom as americans. it is a day to pause and reflect our nation's history, and to thank god for all the blessings he has bestowed upon our land. many other lands don't have it as good as we do, and too many people seem to forget that and take our freedom for granted. this is so sad because i think freedom is a gift, and i thank god we live in a country that allows freedom in whatever we do, think, or say. we may not all agree with people's ideas or inhibitations, but freedom gives them that right, and so we must learn to accept (or tolerate it if we find it hard to accept another's beliefs or ideals).

so, let me wish y'all a very happy and safe fourth of july, and have fun! :) and god bless america~
