Letter: End the annual month of terror

Published:

 

When I read John D. Yount’s March 20 letter, “Fireworks harmful to many groups,” I agree about the terrors of fireworks. My neighbors and I live in a mobile home park and each year the flying rockets land in our yards and on our roofs.

Everyone knows how quickly mobile homes burn to the ground. The fireworks don’t go on just for four days in this neighborhood, but from the middle of June until the middle of August.

On the nights leading up to and on July Fourth, it is a nightmare of booms and blasts and flying missiles and rockets.

Let us end this nonstop display of a monthlong fireworks.
