Fireworks 1976 - Washington DC

In 1976 I was a young newly married woman living in the Washington DC area and attending college. I had the chance to see the fireworks celebrating our Bicentennial from the roof top of the Naval Regional Medical Dispensary across the street from the Lincoln Memorial in full view of the mall. I saw one of the first ever laser shows emanating from the top of the Washington Monument. A spectacular event that made the awestruck crowd fall silent for a few brief moments. The fireworks themselves were an endless array of light, flash, sparkle and color. You could not help feeling patriotic and proud of our country!

So happy 234th birthday Declaration of Independence! Long may we be the country of freedom, a beacon for the world!
