Terrorized by fireworks

Published: 6/26/2020 8:31:15 AM

I am asking for everyone’s help. For whatever reason there have been, people setting off fireworks every day and even late at night. What i considered an irritating nuisance initially, (with everything that is happening in our country) I now feel as if it’s an act of terror. Veterans, other people who suffer from anxiety and/or PTSD, pets, and wildlife, all terrorized daily.

That may seem like an extreme word until you see your pets slinking and hiding every night or you wake with a pounding heart, unable to get back to sleep for hours, or are triggered into a panic attack. I know full well those who are doing this are reasonably unlikely to read a newspaper. I also know the police have been trying to catch them for weeks.

I am asking the community to ask them to stop. Someone knows them or knows of them. Please consider this as a way to truly thank your veterans and essential workers.
