Happy 4th of July, Washington DC

This is the scene from my Petworth street tonight at 11pm: fireworks illuminating the night.

After a morning Freeing Our Streets in Silver Spring, I contributed to my neighborhood’s festivities with sparklers and Miller High Life, the champagne of beers.

How did you show your love for America?
