And as you think of distant others--think of yourselves and say: I wish I were a candle in the darkness
Today, some of these special people were killed in Baghdad, some of the 100 or more killed, 600 wounded in multiple bombings. The loss of their light makes the world a darker place tonight.
If you are so moved, please light a candle to honor those, living and dead, who have given so much of themselves to help humanity. If you can, please consider a gift in their honor. Here are a few organizations that do much good. If you have others to suggest, please leave links in the comments.
International Federation of Red Cross, Red Crescent Societies
Doctors Without Borders
