I would like to express my deep disappointment at how truly unpatriotic the Old School 4th event was. While I appreciate all the labor and time that went into putting on an event to bring our community together for fun and festivities, this was in no way an Independence Day celebration of our great country. No matter your views on the current administration, our country is worthy of celebrating. Having lived and traveled extensively in many other countries, I kiss the ground every time I come home! I am so grateful for the freedoms, rule of law and respect for human life that sets this country apart from most others. Yet not one word was mentioned by any of the emcees that showed any appreciation or gratitude for this amazing place we get to call home. Except for one guitar instrumental during the laser show, there was not even one patriotic song played! For one day at least, couldn’t we have all agreed that the U.S.A. is a country to be appreciated and celebrated? Instead, we played Bohemian Rhapsody and many other songs that don’t have anything at all to do with the reason we gather on the 4th of July. I think we missed the point.
