LIGHT A CANDLE for Family, Friend, Pet, Self, World Peace...
9 months ago
| Items of Interest

This is the link that Wendy posted on the WW1 thread. It is a Care2 'Candle Room' so it will last. I've looked for this link before and couldn't find it, so I don't want to lose it again.

There are so many things to light a candle for these days. Enjoy that peaceful 'room'.

"Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness."
~Anne Frank

"There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."
~Edith Warton

"It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness."
Eleanor Roosevelt et al

"We can feel the vibration that comes from the candle flame, burning its way into our innermind, no blurry images, clear as crystal, we enter into the highest consciousness, on our journey back home, we possess the eagle's eye, the eye that can see the invisible."

I'm sorry I didn't realize so many of you have lit a candle for a loved one. I will check in here more often.

Sandi, Sue, Lily

and Angel - I hope your sister, mom, and dad are doing well now.

Mary, I hope your aunt is doing better.

Everyone lighting a candle for those poor dogs was like lighting a pathway for their travel to Heaven.

I signed a couple of days ago, I just cannot imagine the pain, the parents of the murdered children  feel.

The poor children, they hadn't committed any crime, they were sought out , to prove a point, what will happen when pakistani men join the army to fight against the Taliban. 

The world grieves with the parents and families of the children and their teachers also murdered .  R.I.P.  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh, Wendy.. I didn't see your post until I posted again. That was quick action!

The world surely is grieving and I hope the families of the children and teachers receive the love the world is sending to them. I cannot imagine their pain.

 Cheryl, Sorry to hear about Tweety, He looks almost like my Sam except Sam is all yellow. He is 35 years old and mean. I'll light a candle for him.

do you have a 35 year old cockatiel Sandy?

4 months ago

Yes Barbara I do. he was given to me when he was about 4 years old nobody ever did anything with him, so he never learned how to talk, but he chatters and whistles. you can't pick him up cause he bites hard.

So sorry Cheryl to hear about Tweety,I had hoped he would pull through but I guess his age was against him.
I know how you feel as when I lost my Maurice but I hadn't had him all those years like you but was still  a great loss.

Wow Sandi I never heard of a cockatiel living that long.  That is wonderful!  Can you post a picture of him please?

So sorry Cheryl to hear Tweety crossed the rainbow bridge.  Be comforted with the remembrance of all the years you took such excellent care of him and gave him the best life possible.  You know he loved you for that.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, EVERYONE, for your love and support. You'll never know just how very much it has helped me.

So sorry, Wendy, for the loss of your friend, Val M.

Jill, so sorry for the loss of your friend, Kathy.

I have lost friends on Care2 and I still post on their page from time to time. When you see their words and where they invested their butterflies, it reminds us that they left the world these wonderful gifts - and so much more.

Sandi - your SAM is 35 years old??!! Wow, that is pretty incredible for the life span of a cockatiel. Awesome!!

Commemorating the 70th Anniversary of Liberation

On January 27, 2015, delegations from around the world, including some 100 former prisoners, will travel to Auschwitz-Birkenau to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the most infamous Nazi killing center by Soviet troops. They will honor the memory of the more than 1.1 million people, primarily Jews, but also Poles, Roma (Gypsies), Soviet prisoners of war, and others, who were killed there from 1940 to 1945.

As we remember these victims, we also honor the survivors, soldiers, reporters, and others who bore witness to Nazi crimes and reflect on the challenges we face 70 years after liberation.

Lighting candles in remembrance of Leonard Nimoy who passed into the next life yesterday February 27, 2015.  He was so much more than Mr. Spock, who is my favourite Star Trek character.

He was a wonderful person as well as an actor and our favourite Vulcan, Sue and Mary. So many of us have done the Vulcan sign for Peace and Prosperity. I'm sure that will carry on for a long time to come. He was also a kind and generous soul.

Wonderful picture, Jill. I love it. It could be applied to so many life events - both happy and sad. I can think of numerous captions. Thank you.

Beautiful candle prayer wishes, Rose. I think we all have been there in one or both categories at some time, if we aren't experiencing one or both of them today. May any person - or our loved ones - experiencing these maladies find healing and peace.

I never knew Sam did so much for animals until I read he had funded Sunders' rescue.  He spent most of the last years of his life making life better for so many animals and people.  Bet Sam is now a guardian angel, this guy never gave up.  Here are the two most informative links I could find about his works.

Hoping and praying that more people are rescued from the devastation in Nepal and that aid can arrive as quickly as is humanly possible.  Couldn't find enough candles for them though.  Brightest Blessings to the rescue workers who have. understandably, the toughest job on this planet.

FOR THE PEOPLE IN NEPAL

Also for those affected by the avalanche and surrounding areas. The count of people killed is now up to 5,000 as of CNN report about an hour ago. A little baby boy, four months old, was found alive in the rubble. Searchers left the scene, thinking he was dead. Then they went back when someone said they heard a baby crying. In the midst of devastation, miracles often happen.

 Miracle baby pulled from rubble

-

 The Independent, - Miracle baby pulled from rubble Incredible images have emerged of the moment a four-month old baby was rescued from the rubble of a building devastated by the Nepal earthquake, 22 hours after the disaster struck.

The Nepalese newspaper Kathmandu Today published images of the dust-covered baby boy as he was pulled to safety by members of the army assisting the on-going search and rescue effort.

Soldiers initially missed the child as they searched through the wreckage for survivors and he was only found when they heard a faint cry from beneath the ruins of the building, leading them to check the area again.

The child, named by CNN as Sonit Awal, is reportedly in a stable condition in hospital and escaped the ordeal without any serious injuries.

Wendy, that is EXACTLY what I thought when I heard about this precious baby! It is very special that you thought of that, and there is meaning to you having that thought come to mind. It's as if ... out of the rubble comes rebirth, a new beginning, like the Phoenix rising.

“Suffering and joy teach us, if we allow them, how to make the leap of empathy, which transports us into the soul and heart of another person. In those transparent moments we know other people’s joys and sorrows, and we care about their concerns as if they were our own.”
~Fritz Williams
