As we celebrate our Brexit of 240 years ago, our inner caveman emerges . Each 4th of July, most Americans like to include the burning of things as a symbol of our independence. Whether it is with the loud or showy kind like sparklers, M-80’s, cherry bombs, bottle rockets, etc. The weekend will be a cacophony of booms and brightness followed by sulphery smelling smoke.
Other of us like to light the grill and incinerate a once live creature into a charred slab of protein goodness. Still others will neatly stack small branches of wood and build a glowing fire pit, ready for all kinds of neighborhood sacrifices.
Going for the burn is a good thing. It puts an end to the old. It warms your spirit and it lights the way to a brighter future.
Burn safely and pursue your happiness as the founding fathers intended.
