“The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway.”
— Henry Boye
A good pyrotechnics display is incredible on the Fourth of July.
If you are the one who lights off the firework, clean up the mess with an apology. Then light up a peace candle to resolve whatever differences you may have.
It will not undue the damage, but it might help keep more fireworks from being set off.
Yesterday’s gift of time … Brought my wife flowers because I lit off a firework when lighting a candle would have been more appropriate.
