Feedback: Fireworks fused to freedom
July 3, 2008 · Updated 10:31 PM
I have rewritten this letter several times because new thoughts keep pouring in my head about the subject: fireworks and the Fourth of July.
Ive heard rumors that the Mayors office is taking a poll to decide to keep them or not.
This is my opinion. Keep them! We have so many restrictions now on what we are able to do as far as our freedom celebration. Thats right, our freedom celebration something our parents, grandparents, sons and daughters have fought for (and many have died).
The Fourth of July is more to me and my family than just a barbecue. It represents to us, and many I know, as being a free country; something that means something to us as Americans.
Many firework accidents come from them not being used correctly. People, at least most I know, are quite capable of using them correctly. Why punish the majority who can use common sense for the few that dont?
My question to you is why do you celebrate the Fourth of July. For me, there are so many reasons to do just so.
