Happy 4th of July!!

Typically, I’m not the most patriotic person out there. However, on July 4th, I like to forget about all the things that have been upsetting me about this country and our current president and remember how far we’ve come and to think about some of the things that make me proud.

This year, I’m working on this day, but on the drive home I’m sure I’ll see some fireworks in the sky and marvel at explosives being used for something beautiful.

America has a complicated history. It was built from terror, battles, and a sense of conquering. It’s not a happy history, but we can choose to make America better by being better as people and treating others with respect and reflecting that with the laws we choose to vote for and the causes we choose to advocate for.

On a lighter and mildly interesting note: I found out if you search for 4th of July on an IPhone, fireworks appear from the bottom of the screen.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July. I hope you all eat some great food and spend some good times with family and friends.

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below.

Christmas Lights Strung in the Sky

A burst of energy exploding, imploding in the sky,

The fire glitters 

The air electrified 

By a gorgeous explosion way up high

It feels so humbling 

Standing amongst the crowd 

We are all dazzled 

By the same bright cloud 

It’s Christmas time 

And we are all here 

Listening to this music 

Watching the cloud burst and disappear 

What an amazing sight to see 

Surrounded by strangers and family 

All hoping that this memory 

Will be one to brighten future days 

“There’s a lollipop in the sky” 

A young child cries 

And that’s when I know 

That the magic in this light 

Comes from the inside 

That we stand here to be amazed 

On this winter holiday 

To feel closer to true imagined spirit

That is real because we think it to be 

And to forget for once in our lives 

That reality is the burden weighing heavily on our lives 

So we listen to these songs 

Watching the lights dance along 

To fill our hearts with joy 

To carry along for future days
Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed! 

Till next time!
