I enjoy the excitement of the Fourth of July as much as anyone.
In years past I was as guilty as others for using fireworks illegally, but as I grew older, I understood the dangers! Now we watch them from places that are done professionally.
What really upsets me are fools (yes, fools) that mask their gunshots with the noise of fireworks.
This past Friday (July 4), my daughter’s truck was shot in the driveway of our home. There was a broken window and door panel damage. My home has a broken window and holes through the wall.
Thank God my neighbor was not home at this time because her grandchildren would probably have been in the front yard, right in the track of this gunfire.
Thank God my great-grandchildren were at church watching legal fireworks when the shots came through my wall.
Thank God no one was hurt … this time.
What is our city coming to when fools think danger is fun?
Lord help us!
