Happy Fourth of July! We know you’re eager to light up the sky, so we’ll keep this newsletter brief. Stay safe and have fun!
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
-Francis Scott Key
