What an amazing way to bring communities together. I love 4th of july. What other holiday brings everyone together in one place by cities? Tons of people pushing strollers, carrying chairs and hanging out. I enjoy everything about it. The BBQs, the friends, the fireworks, the amazing american songs and the bold colors- red, white and blue. Every time I hear the national anthe, I cry. Every time soldiers are asked to stand and be recognized, I get choked up with gratitude. Thank you soldiers for making us safe. I am proud to be an American, where I know I'm free!!!!
