Fireworks color the night sky at Peacock Park in Coconut Grove, where residents celebrate the Fourth of July with a picnic.

So it’s home again, and home again, America for me!

My heart is turning home again, and there I long to be,

In the land of youth and freedom, beyond the ocean bars,

Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag is full of stars.

         —From “America for Me” by Henry Van Dyke
