View the fireflies while you still can

To the editor:

On 4th of July eve take your grandchildren and greatgrandchildren out to view the fireflies, because one day soon there will be no more fireflies.

Just as: once there were tallgrass prairies arraying their colors to the sky around.

Fireworks, all over the U.S. on this one holiday, add substantial amounts of atmospheric pollution, not unlike the exhausts of war.
