Every 2nd Sunday in December is Worldwide Candle Lighting (Dutch: Wereldlichtjesdag). That day at 19:00 worldwide people will burn candles to remember there lost child. It does not matter what age your lost child was, it will always be your child to remember.
The world will become a little lighter for those who lost there child and it will gain conscious that you are not alone in your grief. The worldwide candle lighting is an initiative of The Compassionate Friends and started in 1997.
The Melodies from the Heart foundation has created a special video that shares a lot of candles and memories. These candles bear the names of many who have left this earth, but are still alive in our memories.
We thank everyone who has sent their video for this video monument and wish them strength and love.
The song "Your light shines forever" is dedicated to all deceased children.
