Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day

More than half a century ago Eleanor Roosevelt said, It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.

Many have since gone on to believe that the lit candle represents hope in the dark and a resistance against the shadows of our own minds.

October 15th is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. A day where families across the globe are asked to light a candle in remembrance of their baby whose life was too short. If everyone was to light a candle at 7pm in their local time and leave it burning for an hour there will be a continuous wave of light across the world for 24hrs.

May you always see the hope through that flicker of light.
