I would like someone to add up the cost of fireworks to celebrate the coming in of 2013 last night.

Australia alone would have spent billions just so its people can umm and ahhh at the pretty fireworks. What of our fellow humans in other parts of the world who could be fed, educated, clothed and housed with this money? Has the human race gone mad?

What hope is there when such large amounts of money are wasted on trivialities while our fellow humans are suffering so badly around the world?
