I love fireworks! Before my brother's deployment, he loved fireworks too. Unfortunately, he came back from Afghanistan, like many others with PTSD. This makes fireworks difficult for a lot of our current soldiers and veterans. If you have a veteran or currently enlisted soldier in your neighborhood, please consider talking to them. Knowing when you anticipate setting off fireworks won't take away their PTSD, but may give them time to leave or utilize coping mechanisms.
Did you know that the 5th of July is one of the busiest days of the year for shelters? Fireworks are scary for many pets, which triggers their fight or flight response. Be sure to keep your furbabies inside and safe while you enjoy the fireworks!
In case you were wondering...this is what the 4th of July looks like at my office!
