All my companions agree that your celebration of the independence of our country is a wonderful event.
We, if we could, would join in with you cheering the founding of this great country.
We enjoy, to a limited extent, your parades, picnics and swimming hole gatherings on the fourth of July.
We have also grown somewhat accustomed to the fireworks and ceaseless explosions on the 3rd, 4th and 5th. of July.
In my neighborhood the kabooms began on 21 June and continue every night from sundown to midnight.
Could you please consider limiting your celebrations to those days around the 4th so we can come out from under your beds for our late night walks, free of fear.
