The Annual July 4th gathering at Stone Mountain, Ga for families for fireworks has been a tradition for years. It has been a tradition for my family for the last 15 years, we have always gone to Stone Mountain to watch the fireworks show.

The senseless murders of nine African Americans parishioners in a church in Charleston, South Carolina. The perpetrator of this heinous crime was driven by hate and carried the Confederate Battle Flag, a traditional symbol esteemed by hate groups like the KKK. The tradition of Burning Crosses at Stone Mountain, Ga is older than the tradition of shooting fireworks during the Fourth of July on Stone Mountain.
