It’s raining outside, and there’s all kinds of thunder and lightning. I enjoy watching the bright flashes of light but I don’t like the noise. Likewise with fireworks. Nice pretty bursts of light but the booms and the bangs I can do without. Mom keeps trying to tell me there’s nothing to worry about. I believe her but I don’t care– I don’t like the noise. So tonight, there’s flashes of lightning and bursts of colored lights, and lots of booms and bangs from the thunder and the fireworks.
But anyway…… Happy Birthday, America!
