Happy 4th of July, flickr friends

Despite all its issues, we still live in the greatest country on the planet. Remember our forefathers and the efforts they put forth in forming this land we call home.

 

Tonight, the Quad Cities put on their annual Red, White, and Boom celebration with fireworks over the Mississippi River between Rock Island,Illinois and Davenport,Iowa.

 

New this year was the celebration of the Rock Island Arsenal's 150th anniversary and they put on a heck of a show at the same time.

 

Happy Birthday, United States of America.
