After the fire department received a call that a rocket was being launched, they came to make sure that all the precautions were being done. After inspecting the launch pad, they recommended moving the rocket another 30 feet away from the house. "What goes up must come down," the Fire Chief said. Good advice when shooting off any fireworks! 20200704 186/366 USA Independence Day Is July 4 Independence Day, also known as the Fourth of July, or July 4th, takes place on the anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. It celebrates the United States and its independence from Great Britain. It is a patriotic holiday extolling the positive aspects of America, and themes such as freedom and liberty. The Revolutionary War began in April 1775, at a time when many still did not want complete independence from Britain. This sentiment was changing by mid-1776, fueled by things such as the publication of Thomas Paine's Common Sense. On June 7, the Continental Congress met at the Pennsylvania State House—a building now known as Independence Hall. Henry Lee, a delegate from Virginia, introduced a motion calling for independence for the colonies. It was contentiously debated, and a vote on the matter was postponed. A committee was appointed to write a statement outlining the reasons why a break from Great Britain was necessary. The committee consisted of John Adams, Roger Sherman, Robert Livingston, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson—who became its main author. On July 2, the Continental Congress voted in favor of Henry Lee's resolution for independence. Two days later, on July 4, the Declaration of Independence was adopted. Although this was not the actual day of the vote for independence, it became celebrated as Independence Day. The first public reading of the Declaration of Independence took place on July 8, and the document began being signed on August 2. It is interesting to note that both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on July 4, 1826, on the fiftieth anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. How to Celebrate Independence Day? Celebrate by remembering our country’s history and the many men and women who fought for our independence and gave their lives for the cause of freedom. Fly your American flag with pride, knowing how to properly display “Old Glory”. If you use fireworks, do so with safety in mind, being careful not to catch any surrounding buildings or material on fire. If extremely dry conditions exist, it may be advisable not to use any fireworks. If you do your grilling, be sure to watch your food and flame so you can enjoy your meal. And drive safe and sober, do not use a cellphone while driving, and observe all local laws regarding the use of fireworks.
