You may have seen a lot of awareness campaigns circulating right now, 22 pushups, #itsoktotalk and tomorrow's R U OK? Day. We at The Candle Library got to thinking how important these initiatives are to suicide prevention, and how candles can also be symbols of hope and warmth.
Candles have long held an important place in many belief systems and cultures worldwide. They bring light where there is darkness, hope when there is despair and serve as a timely reminder that nobody is alone, someone is thinking about you.
If you know someone who might need this reminder, a bit of TLC, or if you’re not really sure how to ask if they’re ok, maybe giving the gift of light and hope might be a good way to go about telling them you care.
