In honor of Andrew Abdayem, who passed in March due to respiratory crisis at age 23, please light a sparkler or “something spectacular” this 4th of July and share a picture or video of it. His mother, Tracie, told me the 4th of July was his favorite holiday.
If you share a video or picture of your sparkler or fireworks in his honor, please tag us on Twitter or post a link to your video or picture in the form below. Make sure your photo or video are set to public so I can see it. Within a few days I’ll put together a slideshow.
