One spark can blaze a trail

“We should organise a candlelight vigil,” Mr. Derrick said. It was during a meeting at the restaurant in Chateau that he shared this idea after two vicious and fatal crimes had taken place in the North Leeward communities within a three-week period.

On October 5th, 2011 members of these violence-stricken communities came together to join against the forces of darkness and to spread light.

Gathered around this message of peace, the community united to move forward together.

Guard your light and protect it. Move it forward into the world and be fully confident that if we connect light to light to light, and join the lights together of the one billion young people in our world today, we will be enough to set our whole planet aglow.

    This is so wonderful to see. Lately, things have seem dismal here in St. Vincent with the latest slew of crimes so it’s good to see people coming together to extend a different kind of energy in the atmosphere. Peace.

    Powerful photos , I am sure the intensity I felt from your shots doesn’t come close to what was in the air that evening.
