Independence Day is so close that we can already smell the charcoal. It’s an important day to reflect on how far this nation has come in a relatively short 234 years. Sure, our foreign policy has a muddled history and some Americans can be just plain annoying (we’re looking at you, Sarah Palin), but the United States has also produced a lot of great stuff, like The Beach Boys and Martin Luther King Jr. To honor our country’s birthday, we typed in the words “July 4” into Flickr for this week’s Flickr Found Photo Fridays. The following pictures are what popped up.
