Christmas Vigil Proposal

I would like to organize or be part of organizing a Christmas Vigil for the victims of this unthinkable tragedy. Details of the idea are in this post.

I am so saddened by the events that transpired and I know many people share the same feelings.  I propose we keep vigil on or near the school grounds for the 24 hours of Christmas.  This would begin on Christmas Eve where candles for each victim are lit at midnight.  The candles will remain aglow until midnight on Christmas.  If you would like to donate your time to ensure the candles remain lit, please respond to this post.  Other ideas are welcome. If you'd like to call to offer your support of time at the vigil, the number is 203.808.6332.

I'm in Utah, but I love your idea. Wondering if we can send out word to all who read it all over the world, to light a candle with prayer and blessings for the families, on christmas eve. xoxoxoxoxoxo

I will do so at our church in NW Washington State. We lit 20 candles today.
