Worldwide Candle Lighting
Sunday December 9, 2001 is the Fifth Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting sponsored by The Compassionate Friends. People in every time zone around the world are invited to light a candle, wherever they might be, in honor of all children who have died, so that the children's light might always shine.
The Worldwide Candle Lighting is held every year on the second Sunday in December, at 7:00 PM in every time zone. As candles burn down in one time zone, they are lighted in the next, creating a 24-hour wave of light that encircles the globe in a virtual 24 hour memorial.
The Compassionate Friends national Web site, http://www.compassionatefriends.org displays messages that are posted in each time zone as the memorial progresses around the globe. Additionally chat hours for the site are extended so that those who are grieving the death of a child may join others in talking about the children.
For various Poetry and Prose composed for the World Wide Candlelighting visit the website at: http://www.compassionatefriends.org/WW_Candle_Lighting/2001/2001_wcl.htm
