Have a Blast This 4th of July! / by Jason Joseph

......and the rockets red glare.....the bombs bursting in air.

I'd like to take a moment this 4th of July, to remember all those who had to fight, who had to sustain explosions that were not simply beautiful to look at but ones that killed and maimed. The ones you sought cover from not ones we sprawl out beach towels to lounge on and gaze up at lovingly. Thank you.
