By CARYL CLEM:
Freedom flashes in blazing red, white, blue fireworks
Celebrating love of family and country
Just as important today as yesterday
Honoring our forefather’s efforts
Produces reverence, acceptance of citizen diversity.
All shades of spectators sharing this night in unity
Bound by the values of equality and opportunity.
The United States of America, a democratic endeavor
A promise of freedom to endure forever.
Star Spangled Banner, waving over the brave and the free
Fanning the desire to maintain our hard won liberty
Gives proof this July 4th night
How future hopes, are unleashed by a fireworks light.
