If the founding fathers were clairvoyant...

It was brave men who birthed this nation, went to war with Great Britain, and signed the documents that declared this land to be an independent United States of America; but if they had been able to foresee the future and predict a time when their descendants would celebrate freedom with pyrotechnic technologies invented in China; that these devices would be fiery, explosive, and bombastic; and that the flames and sparks would be as destructive as they are beautiful; I think they would have re-thought their timing - that they would have chosen a day that wouldn't be in the middle of the hottest season of the year; a day when our grounds would not be as dry as tinder; a day when the earth would not be so easily ignited.
