quote - hope and light

This Sunday, December 14th, is the 2nd year anniversary of the unthinkable day at Sandy Hook elementary school. Twenty children and 6 educators were shot and killed.

This Sunday is also the Worldwide Candle Lighting created by The Compassionate Friends.  The purpose of the event is to unite “family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age from any cause.”

At 7 pm around the globe candles will be lit to create “a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone.”  The Compassionate Friends is an organization which was formed to support families after a child has died.  Its founder, Simon Stephens, states the mission is “about transforming the pain of grief into the elixir of hope.”
