Independence Day- Lost It's Meaning?

As evidenced by VirginLover's post
"I get it, I am sorry"
(I think that is what it is titled), most American teens don't know their country's heritage.
I have started thinking awhile back that most people think Independence day is "National Fireworks Day" As I was at my country club on July 4 at night witnessing the fireworks going off, there was no hint of Red,White, or Blue. Instead it was like Mardi Gras with lots of purple,green, and golds. I was surprised as the fireworks didn't show any USA colors. Also, people party and stuff like that on July 4, and that is totally understandable, I party also.
But, it seems that when people celebrate Independance Day, they don't think or remember altogether about what Independance Day really is, or the efforts and persistance that our countrymen did to free us[Americans] from England. They don't think about how good and fortunate we are to have FREEDOM and what freedom really is. And the famous battles and events that occured in the USA.(Battle of Bunker Hill, Civil War, Declaration of Independance)
Am I the only one who feels that Independance Day has a whole new meaning, one that really doesn't recognize the history and how fortunate the USA did and how many people died for the United States of America?
feel free to comment, whether you agree with me or not. Or even if you aren't from the states.
