Subject: RE: Americans Light a Candle Fri 14th 7p EST
We lit our candle while we all stood on the porch of our beach weekend house. The wind was 30mph, but we all huddled around the candle so the wind would not touch the flame. We all (20 or so) shared a prayer and a group hug around the candle. We then decided to move away from the candle and let the wind blow it out. We did so, and the flame grew longer, but did not extinguish. Even when held on the windiest side of the house. We brought it inside and placed it in a glass full of beach sand. The door next to the candle was open all night, but the flame did not go out, but rather burned till it descended into the sand...
