We light them for ourselves and for everyone.
"Not only are all men alike (generically speaking), but man by nature is a societal creature. Aside from the strength and weakness found in homo sapiens, man has been working, from the beginning at the great adventure of 'community.' Whenever Cro-magnon man, under whatever strange impulse, put aside his stone and ax and decided to mutually cooperate with his caveman neighbor, it marked the most creative turn of events in his existence."
--Martin Luther King, Nashville Tennessee, December 27, 1962
