I cannot think of a better picture of the Fourth of July. No there aren't any fireworks or flags but to me this is America.
The smiling boy, full of hope, optimism and joy, like the American spirit so many are drawn to around from around the world. The standard American fare beside him--Coca Cola, nachos, junk food. Symbols of America. The blur next to him--America is never slowing down. The mix of the crowd--we do not have a national language, we don't have a similar look (OK most of do have big, blonde hair in the Lone Star State). We are a melting pot, of cultures, ideas, traditions.
And of course, the football field lit up with the bright lights. This is small town Texas. The only place to be on Friday nights in the fall; the only place for our small town to be on the Fourth of July.
Happy Birthday America!
