Letter: Tri-Cities resident shares other side of fireworks spectrum

Writer believes many should be able to enjoy firework displays, but organizers should also consider those negatively impacted by them.
July 1 fireworks in the Tri-Cities.

The Editor:

All the geese have gone since the firework display at Lafarge Lake on Canada Day (July 1).

I go there on a daily basis.

As of this writing (July 11), they still have not returned. 

As exciting as fireworks are for kids and family, most pets and animals — and especially war veterans suffering from PTSD — suffer during the excitement that other families enjoy during firework displays.

I am sure they are wonderful people.

I just want everyone to be aware of the other side of the spectrum.
