This summer for the 4th of July, my family and I watched the fireworks in the heart of our city. We laid out a blanket near the riverbank of the downtown area, surrounded by tall buildings and sparkling streetlights. As darkness settled over the horizon, we saw spectators in fishing boats and excited passersby in brightly colored glow sticks. In front of our view was a large bridge filled with people waiting with eager anticipation for the fireworks show we all were gathered to view. Then suddenly…BOOM!
