Sounds of war we wish to forget 

Dear Editor,   January 3, 2022

I believe I speak for many, if not all, war veterans when I say those firecrackers and mini-bombs that go off on New Years and July 4th (right in our own neighborhoods) conjure up memories we would rather not bring to mind, ever again. Those sounds also fill our companion animals with body-shaking fear. 

Isn't 2022 time to change those war-like sounds to more celebratory sounds, such as bells, chimes, and meaningful music? New Years Eve and July 4th should be filled with sounds of peace we hope to remember, not sounds of war we wish to forget. 

Thank you,
