Fireworks Flashback

Last year a friend posted about how some of our soldiers have a hard time around the holidays with fireworks causing PTSD trauma.  Please be mindful of vets in your neighborhood when deciding to use fireworks over the summer.

As the fireworks explode

Across the night time sky

He hears the bombs detonate

Once again inside his mind

Every year he dreads the holidays

And the memories they bring

The sounds and smell of gunpowder

Scarred him when he was just nineteen

And every fuse that is ignited

Brings more flashbacks to his mind

He is haunted by the sounds of war

Brought to life with just a bang
