Let me start by saying that I am not american. I was born in India and that makes me Indian.

So yesterday was 4th July and like everywhere is USA, we had a huge display of Fireworks -> ” Red, Blue & BOOM”

The fireworks start with different colors, then its red , then its blue, then its red & blue at the same time.

I was at Gas works park in Seattle and I noticed something very strange. While I was there, I heard at least “7” different languages(dialects). At that very park were people who were born all over the world witnessing the Fireworks.
While the Fireworks were making the sky glitter, I looked around. And in the glimmer of the fire in the sky, I saw the same expression of Awe ,on the faces of people from all over the world. It did not matter if they spoke different languages, looked different, everyone was just looking up to the sky and admiring the various shapes made by the exploding fireworks.

If you think about it, fireworks have become an integral part of the US Independence Day celebration. An invention by the Chinese, which was adopted by Indians as being part of the biggest festival for Hindus (Diwali), then travelled to Europe through various trade routes and made its way to USA.
