Coeur d’Alene is the city of INSPIRATION, and we like incorporating fireworks into our annual celebrations.
What is there not to like? Surrounded by family, friends, and neighbors, creating lifelong memories. On Sanders Beach or Tubbs Hill, lying on a towel. Whether it’s cruising down Sherman Avenue on a banana seat bike or boating with a beer, there’s something for everyone. Spectacular fireworks displays illuminate America’s most dynamic small town. Take advantage of our community of caring individuals and the friendliest populace in the country. We appreciate you, the people, because it is only because of you that such tremendous demonstrations are possible.
A sudden and dramatic show of celebratory explosives that has always been a source of delight for anyone fortunate enough to witness them. Our small community of Coeur D’Alene has achieved and continues to make tremendous gains in that area. From the holiday season to the sleepless evenings of summer, we’ve displayed our hearts with such toys, illuminating the night sky with vivid hues on our day of independence and casting vibrant casts of our unity on Christmas and other holidays.
Our lighting rituals and outbursts are visible for miles in all directions, not ridiculing or mocking those who are not with us, but asking and beckoning all to participate. Each event that features such light shows is brimming with vitality and life. Residents and visitors alike, basking in the sun or huddled up in the blizzard, are taking in the beauty and resonating with their loved ones.
Once upon a time, free speech was not a common concept, but it was earned alongside many other priceless privileges on which we celebrate our Independence Day, and on the Fourth, we shine CDA as brightly as the North Star to honor just that; independence. Our predecessors rewrote history in the pursuit of establishing a nation by and for the people, the first in history to create the rules by which our government operates, rather than following those dictated by a government.
For the first time in history, we, the people, founded a nation on the basis of independent thought and liberty, and no better display of that seductive idealism exists than our Fourth of July fireworks ceremony. Our past dictates that we create noise, and these are certainly loud. Bring your friends, family, and neighbors to the ceremony; everyone is welcome. The more, the merrier, since we can never demonstrate enough unity. It is the only angle we have in today’s polarized world.
These events are only feasible as a result of our collaboration and banding together. We are stronger when we are united; when we are separated, we fall. On the Fourth, we commemorate togetherness in remembrance of a moment that seems so distant but so close, so forgotten yet so pervasive. We appear to have underestimated our capabilities, which is odd considering our nation’s past. People appear to be so estranged from one another, vying for “more” or “better” than one another, as if these things were really significant.
We are all identical. Our past have carved a separate route and provided us with unique insights, but we were all born human. And how human is it to express gratitude for our forefathers’ efforts? To commemorate our achievements? Very much so, but it is also human to forget that we must continue to preserve these beliefs, as we have just neglected. In such a time as this, we require conscientious individuals.
With the current state of affairs, we need to shake things up a bit. What else is prevalent is the New Year’s Eve ball drop in New York. Isn’t that a beautiful way to mark the beginning of a new era? To be sure, we in CDA have our own method of commemorating this; more fireworks.
On New Year’s Eve in Coeur D’Alene, we have a lighting ceremony similar to the one held on Independence Day, except we celebrate the dawn of a new year rather than our independence, but both are wonderful events for the community. Each year, we all lighten the gloom to appreciate the new times, rejoicing in our oneness and the impending arrival of better days.
Therefore, please join us in Coeur D’Alene for our lighting ceremonies! Or our schools, restaurants, parks, and neighborhoods, and I could go on and on. The point is that we are a lovely town prepared to accommodate more lovely individuals and to promote happiness and friendliness wherever we can. The greater the number, the better. These brightly colored protests mean nothing to the spirit for which they are lit and can only serve as a symbol. Our people’s heartwarming welcome is more than willing to be yours. It’s all for one here, which ideally attracts like-minded others and spirals into something fantastic. Let us light some fireworks in its honor, shall we?
