Light Candle On Porch Friday For Newtown

Morton Grove is honoring the victims of the Newtown shooting rampage by asking residents to light a candle (preferably flameless) in their window or on the porch. Light the Night and show your support.


To honor the victims of the Newtown shooting rampage, in which 20 children and seven adults were killed Dec. 14, the village of Morton Grove is encouraging residents to participate in a community-wide show of support.

To take part, place a candle, preferably flameless, in your window or on your porch Friday, Dec. 21 from 5 to 10 p.m.

You're invited to post a photo of the candle in your window or porch onto this article by clicking on "Add a Photo," and Niles-Morton Grove Patch editor Pam DeFiglio will share it with Newtown Patch. Add a comment for the people of Newtown, Conn., too.

Grayslake, Barrington and Lake Zurich also participated in Light the Night memorials this week.

Our village of Morton Grove is a bit smaller than that of Newtown. We, too, have friends and neighbors who teach at our local elementary and middle schools; our children and those of our neighbors attend those schools. My heart breaks for the families of Newtown dealing with this unspeakable tragedy. May God bless all of the little ones who were taken too soon, the teachers who protected them and in doing so lost their lives, and the first responders who are affected by such senseless violence. In your unimaginable grief, please know that our community supports you and will continue to pray for you and your families.
