I think that all the people who blow off fireworks on the Fourth of July should really think about
the military veterans who have been in a combat zone.
I was in Vietnam, and the non-thinking non-vets do not realize how blowing off fireworks affects us. The media worry about pets; maybe they should worry about us veterans. The noise of exploding fireworks might give us the PTSD that people worry so much about.
People who have never served in the military or in a combat zone should think about this.
