Despite incurring a serious eye injury three years ago from a firework accident, Jameson Lamb, 19, still considers the Fourth of July his favorite holiday. The accident happened at his family’s cottage in Michigan where they traditionally celebrate Independence Day. He no longer sets off fireworks himself, but he is still looking forward to watching the show that his family and friends annually put on. He is now advising that while people enjoy the day with celebrations that they still¬†take caution.
