Light a Candle for Megan

Tomorrow night, remember Megan with us, and any other child you know of who has died by joining in the Worldwide Candle Lighting sponsored by The Compassionate Friends, a national self-help support organization for families grieving the death of a child. They have sponsored this Worldwide Candle Lighting during the holidays to honor the memory of all children -- no matter their age -- for the last 13 years.

Anyone, whether or not you have been personally touched by such a tragedy, is invited to remember all children who have died by joining in the Worldwide Candle Lighting on Dec. 13. Although officially held for one hour at 7 p.m. local time, this has become an event where hundreds of services in memory of children are held throughout the day around the world.

Everyone is encouraged to light candles in their home, whether alone or with friends and family. -- Patricia Loder, Executive Director, The Compassionate Friends
