Independence Day 2006. In Atlanta it rained in the evening so most of the celebrations were cut short. Here are some locals gathered for the parade put on by one of our news television stations. It was terrible this year, they were honoring the military troops who just came back from Iraq. They paraded troops with weapons, tanks and hummers through the streets and I thought it was all very intimidating, not to mention boring. (Forgive my lack of sentimentality regarding the war, my politics showing through here.) My 5 year old daughter was terrified. Not my idea of a great parade so we left halfway through. Next entry I will post all the pictures I have of the Independence Day parade.



Since we couldn't endure the parade, we had lunch at Johnny Rockets.

Its scary when then think the best representation of the 4th is tanks and hummers.

yeah I have to agree - not the kind of things I'd want to take a child to see ! I'm sure there a better things to parade than weapons.

those poeple by the sidewalk look like they're on a beach. and it's good to have a 'day-ly' photo.

Soldiers parading with guns and tanks is not my idea of a parade too! Hope your girl is ok now :)
