Yes the fireworks have begun and it is the noise I take issue with. I believe there are city fireworks shows people could attend, so anyone who has loud fireworks in their backyard, till all hours on the Fourth, is simply selfish and inconsiderate.
Homes with young children, older people, dogs, and adults who go to sleep earlier than 11 p.m. all suffer and stress on this night. Unhealthy for all of them.
Please think of your neighbors. Go to a city event, watch fireworks on TV, have a party inside your home, just please don’t involve those who have no interest in your fireworks because your noise has no boundaries. Be a good neighbor.
