December 11th, 2016 was the Worldwide Candle Lighting Day. Everywhere around the globe, at 7 PM local time people lit candles to remember their lost loved ones.
The idea is to portray that even though people may have died and no longer exist in this world, their memories and legacies will endure. This brings the following questions to mind;
What will you be remembered for when you are gone?
Will your so-called loved ones even light a candle for
No doubt, this world we live in is a very dangerous and wicked one. We have to always ensure that when we leave, we should not be remembered for how many people we could have helped but never did, how many hearts we have broken, how many eyes cried because of our actions and inaction or how many relationships we have severed.
We should be remembered for the countless times we have helped people realized their true purpose and potentials in life. We should strive to impact our world positively so that when we leave, people will have a reason to light candle for us on a day light this.
Who will you light a candle for today? and why?2
