While I am sure that there are pest control guys out there that are reminiscing about blowing up little bugs with fireworks, I have never done so myself. Most firework damage that I have caused was inflicted upon myself. And as entertaining as it may seem to stick a M80 into a volcanic Texas fire ant mound, I wouldn’t advise it. Where do think all those flying red ants are going to end up? And do you think they are going to be kind to your arms and legs when they land there? No there are much better ways to get rid of fire ants.
On a more serious note, Independence Day.
“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty…” That liberty began with the words of the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” That day, that document, those words, are believed to be the most impactful words of American history. Adam’s said, “It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.” Our legacy today isn’t just to acknowledge and celebrate our gratitude for the hard fought freedoms we enjoy, but to stir up a remembrance of our civic duty. We are to remember our responsibility as the governed to uphold those truths of freedom. May we enjoy this holiday. May we sing, to those author’s of liberty,
“Long may our land be bright,
With freedom’s holy light.”
“Let Freedom ring.”
