I booked my ticket in January... eight months in advance. Needless to say I was super pleased with my seat, with the experience and with the chance to witness such a fun and immaculately executed event.
I've updated the photos with A LOT of my happy snaps from the night. And yes, I'm ashamed to say, I did have my phone out for a wee few pictures of fireworks... at least I wasn't recording the fireworks!!!!
My major take away from this awesome event is that when you step away from the glaring news and media, when you witness what a collective creative endeavour can accomplish just for the entertainment of others, then you realize that all is not lost.
I get it's a little ironic (I never know if I use that correctly damn Lanis Morrisette for misguiding me...) to have this kind of revelation at a Military event. And I'm not a numbskull, sure there are other reasons they do this event than purely for entertaining strangers. But I couldn't help but feel happy in the moment that I was alive and breathing and enjoying the culmination of what would have been thousands of manhours of hard work.
