Why do people set off fireworks? How do people streets and miles apart from each other have anything in common…enough in common to set off fireworks?

In this life, nothing seems to last. Everything dies, especially fireworks. One dazzling burst of brilliant flame, lights spinning around in a heavenly cascade…then its memory leaves a faded stain on a darkened sky. Once beautiful, now lost. Why do people set off fireworks?

Because of a mutual understanding between all things living.

Because we are all connected by one vital feeling.

Because in this life, there is one thing that never truly dies: celebration.
