We would like to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July from ArtLab T-Shirts, Signs in Melbourne and Palm Bay, Florida. Please make sure you play safe, drive safe and stay safe while celebrating the Independence of our great country. When it comes to fireworks, please be courteous and think about your neighbors.
War veterans with PTSD may be traumatized by unexpected fireworks. The bright lights and booming sounds of fireworks on the Fourth of July can be tough for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Look for this sign in your neighborhood and respect those that have served by being courteous, let them know when you plan on fireworks, so they are not taken unaware. If you need one of these signs, ArtLab T-Shirts, Signs in Palm Bay will give you one for the asking.
Some think the signs are offensive because they put a damper on the fun.But we at ArtLab T-Shirts and Signs think most folks will find that they can celebrate without causing these heroes any more anguish.
What these veterans are asking for is just a little consideration on a very special day. July 4th marks Independence Day for Americans each year, but for thousands of vets, the fireworks can be a trigger for difficult memories. For the many vets dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder, the sound of the fireworks popping is all too similar to the sound of bullets.
PTSD is a serious condition many soldiers find it unmanageable; others only find solace with the help of service dogs.
On a holiday meant to honor those who fought for our Independence in 1776, we must be considerate of those who fight for our freedoms today.
Speaking of Service dogs, our shop dog Darby also wants to put in an appeal for all of our four legged friends who suffer through this holiday.
Pets are scared by fireworks and need special attention. Did you know that more pets are lost on the fourth of July than any other day of the year? Also, we sometimes celebrate our freedom with fireworks, but did you ever stop to consider the affect those fireworks may have on some war veterans.
If you need one of the signs for Veterans With PTSD, contact your local sign printer ArtLab in the Melbourne and Palm Bay area and we will provide one for you for FREE. Call 321-984-8844 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one for your veteran.
Have a safe and Happy Fourth of July. Celebrate responsibly and be courteous to all, let’s keep this country great with love and respect for all!
ArtLab will be closed today in recognition of the holiday and to spend time with our families. We will be back in tomorrow making great t-shirts, signs, decals, banners and much more.
