The Night We “Lit Up The Lakefront”

23 Jan

 

My fiance and I will never forget the night we helped “Light Up The Lakefront” with One Brick last fall. When first assigned our task of placing candles in brown bags of sand, it didn’t hit us. When we were asked to light those candles, it didn’t hit us. Yet when they told us…it hit us.

 “Each lit candle represents a woman effected by domestic violence.” 

The candles turned from glowing brown bags to lives. We turned to women telling their stories and we suddenly learned our true meaning for being there that night. 

Thank you One Brick for giving us the opportunity to be apart of it.
