Honor the Sandy Hook Children: Turn Off Your Lights on Dec. 24

Posted: Updated:

I will turn off my Christmas lights at 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve and light them on Christmas Day at about 8 a.m. (about the same time those Newtown children would have been opening their Santa gifts). That will be my vote to stop killing children in our cities, our schools, and our streets.

Please join me and pass it along. If you don't celebrate Christmas, then turn off your porch light or carefully turn off those house lights you don't really need, or hit the streets with lit candles to blow them out at 8 p.m.! Use the darkness on Dec. 24 to vote for gun control. Please pass it on.
