Fireworks are providing headaches and aggravation

To the Editor:

July 4 used to mean celebrating our freedom, family picnics and beautiful fireworks. Now, all it is, is loud bangs, booms, aggravation and being a prisoner in our own home.

Even if “you” wanted to have a picnic, you can’t because of someone setting off the loud fireworks. The M80s, half sticks are deafening!

The holiday lasts for too many days! The fourth does not mean the same as it has in the past because of ignorant people.
