    "The explosion happened near the ferry docks. It was unreal. There was a huge boom. The explosion peeled the top off the 18-wheeler truck." .... even hours after the explosion you can still smell fireworks in the air.... it’s believed all those hurt are employees of the company putting on the fireworks.

    "It looked like 40 minutes worth of fireworks went off in four seconds."

    I love to watch fireworks but this is exactly why they scare me. How sad.

    Justice for Travis


    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    What a dangerous job they do in order for others to be safe.
    "WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.

    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    I think fireworks are silly. All that money up in smoke. Buy a kaleidoscope.

    My friend lost an eye setting off fireworks. All for a few minutes of "ooooooh..."
