But I said yes because it was really nice for him to take me and I was grateful.

And there were a bunch of opening acts like The Strike (pictures in this post may just be of little people on stage but it's a stadium... so that's the best I could do)
And of course this guy jumping out of a plane with the American flag. Just like the founding fathers.

And then Kelly Clarkson came out and did an amazing job! It was beautiful!
Basically the only surviving American Idol star and she is still going strong!

Throughout the fireworks show there were commentaries given on the progress of the United States and inspiring footage played of significant events that brought us to where we are today. It was moving and a great reminder that America always stands for freedom and progress!
