"It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness." Wherever you are, you can bring light into dark places, even in Second Life. Two sims have offered up spaces where residents can go and light candles to which you can attach your own wishes and prayers. One is in Darkwood Cathedral (pictured) and the other in Burning Life.
The Burning Life build, created by Frend Projects, unfortunately has to ask people to "not leave trash or burning planes in the side of the building.. It is not appropriate." It’s a sad, uncivil world we live in. At least the Shikima WTC memorial no longer has a plane flying into it.
I will be at a real world memorial later this evening to plant a real candle with other New Yorkers. But the prayer has already been spoken in my heart.
