Fourth of July Wishing

This picture was taken on the Fourth of July. I was invited to celebrate the day with a friend's family. After an amazing fireworks display, they like to release Chinese Lanterns. This year, they were remembering the passing of a loved one making the ceremony even more beautiful. Watching the lanterns rise into the night sky is a breathtaking experience.
