Back in the day, a lot of fireworks were legal
to buy and to have for one’s own use at home.
A group of boys would gather especially on
the 4th, bring their personal stash of fireworks…
particularly rockets. And then, they’d lite them
and shoot them at each other. One Fourth of
July as they were shooting rockets at each other,
one landed in the stash of one of the teenage boys.
They all ran, took cover, knowing that soon
the fireworks would all ignite at the same time
and together the flames would be spectacular.
A magnificent sight to see indeed.
