16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The 4th of July Promise

This is my husband Beriah and our 3 year old son, Kasen. We had missed the 4th of July fireworks during the week and heard there was a display happening in the town over in Salem, NJ on July 6th. We promised our son he'd get to see fireworks and we ended up with a front row seat. He was a little scared at first and clung to us (as pictured) but ended up oooh'ing and ahhh'ing in happiness and wonder. Its a beautiful memory.
