Broadway is burning with all the energy of a wildfire. Once lush leaves are blown from the blackened branches that held them. Now embers, they dance in the night sky to the music of the flame. Fireworks will continue to fly, and many more mornings will arrive to reveal a wasteland devoid of color. How does one protect this world from so many who are willing to watch it burn for their own enjoyment? What kind of future are we creating?
