Why is this important?

Light is often taken for granted. When it gets dark, we simply flip a switch and enjoy the illumination that a lamp or light fixture provides for us. We can continue reading, engaging in conversation, playing cards, or working a crossword. We feel a sense of security knowing that the lights are on. When it gets dark on the streets, however; it stays dark until the sun comes up.
