Almost a year after New York Giants defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul almost lost his whole hand in a fireworks accident, he is now featured in a PSA about fireworks safety.

Pierre-Paul's hands visible in the PSA, its a glaring reminder of how quickly fun can turn into horror.

They are using there hashtag #FireworksHurt for social media purposes.

Pierre-Paul almost saw his NFL career end in the process, but after a bunch of surgeries and a ton of hard work to rehab, Pierre-Paul rejoined the Giants during last years regular season and even received a new contract this offseason.

Clearly, he has been limited from what he was once able to do with full mobility in his hands, but his determination and desire to return to the NFL is one I view with great admiraiton.

So again, have a great 4th of July, but please be careful while doing so and hopefully JPP's injuries and experience can be an example non of repeat.
