The Fourth of July should be fun for everyone, if only the holiday were restricted to the Fourth, it’s actually from the day the (fireworks) stand opens until a week after the Fourth.
As I’m reading the article, “Fun on the Fourth,” (Auburn Reporter) I am remembering how much “fun” I had listening to all of the illegal explosions going off in our neighborhood until 3 a.m. and continue far past the Fourth. This has to be by far the worst year yet as it appears the message, “If it goes up or blows up, it’s illegal” is meaningless.
Wouldn’t it be nice if our celebration of the Fourth included some respect and consideration for those affected adversely by a few who choose to ignore the law? Then maybe we would all enjoy the holiday.
