Celebrating the pledge

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
Over 200 years ago, 56 men signed their names under these words, declaring the independence of the country we now call the United States of America.

Buying fireworksToday, we celebrate each 4th of July with fireworks. You can go to the big fireworks show at Downey High School, above, or you can buy your own "safe and sane" fireworks at one of the many fundraiser fireworks stands around town. At this stand, the Downey High School cheerleaders are there to encourage you.

  1. "We in this country, in this generation, are by destiny rather than choice the watchmen on the walls of world freedom. We ask therefore, that we may be worthy of our power and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve in our time and for all time the ancient vision of peace on earth, goodwill toward men."

    --John F. Kennedy (from a speech that was never delivered, due to Kennedy’s death)
