Humans of the United States of America.

Fireworks, Hollywood Bowl — July 2017

Day 4 — Book Writing/Birthday Month

Independence.

Freedom.

Fortuna.

Fortunate.

Thank goodness for holidays.

Although they do seem to bring out

some of the worst behaviors in people.

“that’s my seat”

“we were here first”

“you always do this, I hate you.”

Some things I overheard yesterday

During the celebration of our independence.

But then you watch the fireworks

And listen to the US Air Force Band of the Golden West

Play beautifully

And look at this amazing iconic place

(the Hollywood Bowl)

And you tune out the negativity

The screaming

And turn to them and smile big

And say isn’t this beautiful?

Happy 4th of July.

And you disarm them.

For a minute anyway.

And they smile back at you.

And they start fighting again.

Ah humanity.

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
