This candle is for everyone.

For those who are gone and those who are here.

For those who lost their lives to violence and those who lost there lives to illness.

For the families who have lost a loved one and for those who are welcoming someone into the fold.

For your neighbor and your countryman.

For the joyful and the suffering.

For those who are grieving a loss and those who are celebrating a milestone.

For all countries, all races, and all people.

For friends known and friends not yet met.

For the children and for the elderly.

For all beings. Great or small.


This candle is for me.

This candle is for you.

This candle is for everyone.


Cherish yourself. Cherish your loved ones. Cherish your world.
