Happy 4th of July! Hope you have a wonderful time during time day of celebration.

Below is a section from the series John Adams where congress makes the vote to separate from Briton. Even though the events in the video happened on July 2nd it was the official declaration of independence from Briton. Try to feel the weight of that day. Here were representatives of colonies making the vote of independence. They knew that they were setting a course of the nation that would plunge them into war and where there would be no ability to turn back. Yet, they took the step forward which began the country we now live in.

And what better way to celebrate the birth of out nation than shooting off fireworks. I don’t know about you but growing up in the south meant that we have access to all kinds of fireworks and were free to use them how we so desired. This song is a celebration (or paradoy) of that freedom.
