Dogs are scared to death with all the noise ... so, to be mindful of their state ... it's the least we can do.
It's a crazy night, and here in LA, the sky around our place is alight with streaks and flashes and color in every direction ... screeches, crackles, booms and bangs.
For some, it's hamburgers and hotdogs ...
Cold beer or Margaritas ...
Friends and family.
Some will be thoughtful about the times.
Lady Liberty and Justice for All.
We can hope ...
A trait so profoundly human.
So daunting at times.
But hope is our lifeline to life.
And with the sky alight with color, with all the oohs and aahs of the crowds, and the cries of excited children, we hope for our nation and hope for our world.
So remember the dogs.
And the people, too.
For all of them, we hope.
