If more could see that they are not alone, like the man in the poem did, then this could impede the number of people that commit suicide. The solidarity of all the people on the roof is captured with the author's description of the way the cigarette buds look like "the tiny campfires we lit at the beginning of the world" (27). The acceptance for the man is able to give him this new beginning.
He was upset by the display, and only continued to become more reluctant to join the ghost as memories of his ex-fiance were seen. This situation, was written with purpose - to enable Scrooge to change his ways and reflect back on his past, in order to be ‘saved’ on future. If it was not for the ghost, Scrooge wouldn’t have revisited this scenario, and hence there would have been no impact on his future actions. Although, the loss of Belle was a key component in the way that Scrooge viewed himself, both back then and in the present. Belle had mentioned that he ‘was another man’ when they first met, although Scrooge was too blind to notice his actions.

Pulling his hood farther over his head, Taehyung steps out into the cold. He almost feels guilty when he materializes a pack of cigarettes out of his pocket; he promised his mother that he would quit smoking, but he figures what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her, so he shrugs and flicks the lighter to life anyway. Maybe Taehyung isn’t so great at the whole promise thing, but he thinks that maybe there isn’t enough data. He isn’t a person that makes many promises—mostly small things that he knows can definitely be accomplished. Like giving Jimin a ride home from work or reading that book that Namjoon has been pestering him about.
