Happy Independence Day America! Traditionally, on the 4th of July, after a day of parades and BBQ’s, many Americans watch firework displays to celebrate our independence. Due to all the fires in Colorado, there will not be any fireworks where I live. Since I live in Colorado Springs, there is an EXTREME risk and not even a sparkler is allowed here. But it is important to remember this day and celebrate anyway you can.
In Colorado Springs, one way to celebrate is by giving a tribute to the firefighters and families who were directly affected by the Waldo Canyon fire by shining flashlights into the sky at 9:30 p.m. I thought this was a great idea. If you live in Colorado Springs, consider this act of kindness. Shine the light! And let the whole world see! =)
