We had another fun year of fireworks on Hilton Head Island, SC. It is a great scene. People gather to stake out a spot on the fairway of the 18th hole of the Harbour Town Course. The setting is really beautiful with the sun setting over the water of the sound and a lot of people hanging out and happy. It really is a great time and a great setting.

And there are a lot of fathers tossing footballs around with their sons.

Even the good times with lots of smiles and laughter are still tempered by grief. You probably wouldn't have recognized it if you had been there. I don't know if it is something that I am learning to live with it, or just know how to hide. Or if that isn't just two ways to say the same thing.
