Holiday Weekends In Arizona

I hope you all had a great Independence Day celebration. Many people forget the 4th of July is America’s birthday. This became even more apparent to me as I watched the news and heard of all the terrible things that happened in Arizona over the Independence Weekend.

Below are just a few of the news stories (and tragedies) that occurred in Arizona. Terrible things happen everywhere, but the bad things that happen in Arizona are unique. Times meant for celebration often turn into something else in Arizona.

For each of the tragedies listed above, there are multiple families affected for the rest of their lives. The friends and family members of these victims will always remember Independence Day 2012 as the worst day of their lives.

Come on Arizona, Independence Day is meant to be a day of celebration!

What worries me most is Labor Day is only a couple of months away. Can Arizona get that holiday right? I’m not holding my breath.

    Very sad! Did you hear about the Yacht that overturned and killed 2 children? There were 28 people on the boat the are not sure the what exactly caused this accident. But can you imagine? Everyone on the boat enjoying the 4th, having a good time and then it ends like this? What surprised me most is the rain and clouds we had yesterday. We never get this, and finally it comes but on the 4th of July! Ha! But it did seem to clear just in time for the fireworks, and that beautiful full moon got to peek through! Good article!
