People often think a holiday as an occasion when their hearts are swelling with joy, happiness and hope for the future. Independence Day, in particular, is recognized as the day of celebration when fireworks are set off as usual.

However, on the U.S. Independence Day this year, what rang out was the report of the gun killing people, not the fireworks, bringing only misery and despair to the hearts of the people.

On July 4th, in Chicago, Illinois, a white man sprayed the American citizens, who were making demonstration parade on Independence Day, with 70-odd bullets, killing 7 people and injuring 30-odd people. Because of this incident, festive mood was soon turned into mourning atmosphere.

The governor of Illinois deplored this incident this way. He said he was greatly shocked to find that the greatest festival in the U.S. was turned into a complete fiasco thanks to the “infectious disease” peculiar to the U.S. He also said that Independence Day is an annual event, but large-scale gun-related crime has become a traditional ceremony since it is being held every week.

It is said that as many as 300 large-scale shooting incidents have occurred in the U.S. so far this year and tens of gun-related crimes were committed on Independence Day alone.

Its root cause lies in the decadent feature of the American society.

Fierce partisan fight, a mountain of national debt which is snowballing, skyrocketing prices, series of gun-related crimes, hatred towards ethnic minorities and ensuing social division-these are all true features of the U.S.

According to the recent public opinion poll in the U.S., 90% of the respondents said that the U.S. is going in the wrong direction. This serves as a living witness to the fact that the U.S. is fully responsible for the present situation.

The gun report rang out on Independence Day is the death knell for the U.S.
