Light a Candle for Peace

Evergreen School CandleIf there is any meaning to be found in the Sandy Hook tragedy, it was best expressed in the words of President Obama on Sunday: “This is our first task – caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right.”  If you have not read the speech, please do here. As we mourn for lives lost in Sandy Hook, let us draw strength from our community, knowing that together we will continue doing right for our children– providing the love, hope, comfort, learning, freedom, guidance and security they need to grow straight and strong.

On Friday, our entire school family will come together for our Winter Festival.  At the closing, we will sing Light A Candle For Peace by Shelley Murley. Please sing with us.

Light a candle for peace,
Light a candle for love,
Light a candle that shines all the way around the world.
Light a candle for me,
Light a candle for you,
That our wish for world peace
Will one day come true.
Sing peace around the world.
Sing peace around the world.
Sing peace around the world.
Sing peace around the world.
