It was disturbing to see the photo of two young girls running away from fireworks that they had set off near them on Puyallup tribal land (TNT, 5-28). Their flip-flops wouldn’t have given much protection from possible sparks.
A friend who is an emergency room doctor tells us about serious accidents and wounds from burns that occur each year from fireworks. Giving coverage to the dangerous use of fireworks is not in the best interest of keeping people
safe on the Fourth. Fireworks laws should be enforced, and perhaps it may save some children and adults from trips to the hospital.
