Fire and candlelight have sustained and accompanied human beings for over 200,000 years. Light warms us, helps us feel safe, gives us hope, and brings a sense of the sacred. The light of twenty precious children and six caring adults shall not be extinguished. Their flame of courage and love can fuel our collective will to insist on ways to protect and safeguard our children, citizens and our communities. In most of the world’s religions, candlelight represents enlightenment and the miracle of life. Let us be courageous and creative in remembering these sacred souls.
