Lighting a candle on the winter solstice

Few symbols offer more comfort than a candle blazing in the dark, especially in the bleak mid-winter when everything is blanketed with snow (at least here it is....).

Today, I lit a virtual candle for Steve and all those affected by mesothelioma, whether victim, family or friend. The candle will burn for the next 48 hours. To visit the website and read the dedication, read the thoughts of others who have lit candles or to light a candle of your own, go to the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) website which you can access from the link on the right, under "Find out more about mesothelioma" and click on "Light a candle Community".  Our candle is identified by the initials LW.

Since it started, some 10,692,400 candles have been lit by people from more than 240 countries, including over 14,000 in the last two days.  We are a large, worldwide community providing beacons of hope and inspiration for each other.
