Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul shared pictures of his hand after a fireworks accident four years ago.  The gruesome pictures are a reminder to not play with fireworks.

Here’s JPP’s message.  Flip through the pictures at your own risk (you’ve been warned).

It’s been 4yrs since my accident and I can truly say I’m very blessed and fortunate to be where I am in life. Looking at these pictures seems unreal and crazy. How your life can change in the blink of an eye. One of the greatest American traditions in celebrating 4th of July is with fireworks. Unfortunately, tomorrow someone will be injured playing with fireworks. We are celebrating the birthday of our great nation. I’m glad to still be alive to show you the outcome of what happened to me. Please don’t feel sorry for me, trust me your boy fine even with missing fingers lol. Be safe out there otherwise, this can be you.

Be careful out there kids.  You don’t want to blow your hand up, it doesn’t feel great.
