On Friday the 21st, at 6 p.m.. in loving remembrance of the children of Newtown, and in memory of all of the beautiful lights among us that have been extinguished by gun violence this year and in years past, in an expression of national outrage at our nation's inability to engage in meaningful constructive action, in an expressions of grief over what has become of us, and in a clear expressions of solidarity with those who favor sane and reasonable gun laws and full support for mental health care let us darken our Christmas lights in every city, town and village across our nation for one hour and in that quiet darkness let our leaders see the light.
