Backyard Fireworks

It’s that time of year again: Fourth of July is just a few short days away, and the celebrating has already commenced for some, with plenty of grilling and chilling, and more than a few fireworks to celebrate our nation’s independence.

With most fireworks shows cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fact that many fireworks may now be purchased right down the street at area retailers, we are sure to see plenty of backyard displays during the evening hours in the coming days.

Non-aerial fireworks, including sparklers, poppers, and snappers (nothing that “explodes”), may now be legally sold in New Jersey, and it is a safe bet that some more heavy duty options will mysteriously find their way into a few backyards as well.

The “Bad-Good Old Days:” Remembering Life for the Homeless Prior to the Coronavirus Pandemic

Article Image Alt Text

By Jeff Friedman
Editor’s Note: This week, Jeff Friedman, founder and director of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc., reflects on how life for the homeless of Essex County has changed for the worse since before the coronavirus pandemic.
    •    •    •
The “bad-good old days” ended for the homeless and profoundly poor after mid-March. Prior to the abrupt, life-changing pandemic, conditions were beyond awful for these communities, living with rampant food insecurity in extreme poverty. Those were the good old days.
It has been a heartbreaking transition for these thousands right here in northern New Jersey as COVID-19 grinds into July. The “good old days” quickly shifted into the “much worse, with even less food availability and deeper disenfranchisement new days.”
Was it just a few months ago when the “bad-good times” rolled?
