i fully appriciate your patriotism as well all cultures, traditions and freedom. I am aware of firework tradition of the July 4th and would celebrate it with you anytime. Here in Canada there are Americans who do celebrate and have their own parties and functions on July 4th as well as in East Africa were i come from and have toasted a few drinks with them. The Americans in East Africa were 'Peace Corps' teachers who come over to teach and avoided going and fighting wars and killing in other countries (Vietnam timeframe).
The only objections i am having is why patrotism and freedom for some Americans only apply to themself and for some nothing exist outside of usa.............
