Alternative to buying fireworks
For all the individuals buying fireworks, I have a positive alternative. Enjoy the local city fireworks and use the money you would have spent to help a family in need with food costs so they, too, can enjoy the Fourth of July.
If you don’t know anyone personally who is in need, Salvation Army or St. Vincent DePaul would probably know of someone who could use a helping hand.
It will be more peaceful – especially for war veterans and pets who can be traumatized by the noise of all these fireworks.
Happy Fourth of July and God bless the U.S.A.
