Light the light of love in the darkness of death

Inside the Hallgrímskirkja Church in Reykjavik, we lit a candle.

In memory of Rehtaeh, Amanda, Arianna, Cassidy, … in supplication and silence the light burns.

Do not let the darkness prevent you from seeking the light!

And when you have found it, let other people see,  re – think and be convinced.

If you want the light to live, then give rise to the same yearning in other people.

Light the light of frankness in the darkness of fear,
light the light of justice in the darkness of corruption,
light the light of faith in the darkness of denial,
light the light of hope in the darkness of despair,
light the light of love in the darkness of death.
Light the Light!
