These ceremonies are for families that have experienced the death of a child, sibling, or granchild, no matter how long ago, or at what age.
At 7pm local time, a candle is lit for every child being remembered. So as they are lit over the entire globe, the light shines for 24 hours to commemorate and honor children, siblings, and granchildren of all ages who have died from any cause and transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious, and political boundaries.
Take a look at this video…….
Whether or not there is a service in your area, please join me in lighting a candle at 7pm your local time this Sunday, December 11, 2011.
