Please do this if you have fireworks..

Photo: As we celebrate the 4th of July, keep in mind that for some #Veterans with #PTSD the loud booms of fireworks can trigger flashbacks to scenes of war. Please share this message to remind everyone to be considerate of their #Veteran neighbors who may be affected by fireworks.
Please keep in mind as you celebrate this wonderful holiday that there are some who have served our country and have come back with PTSD .
Post traumatic Stress Disorder occurs after someone goes through a terrifying ordeal that involved physical harm or the threat of physical harm.
The wonderful Veterans who have come back to us could have PTSD and the fireworks that are being shot off can trigger unwanted flashbacks to scenes of what they experienced in the war.
Here's some reading material for you..
