October 15 -- National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

On September 28, 2006 the House of Representatives passed a resolution naming October 15 as the official day to observe National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.  Across the nation, multiple events and activities are planned to observe this day.  One event is the Pregnancy and Infant Loss Wave of Light candle lighting campaign.  On October 15 at 7pm in ALL time zones worldwide, people are encouraged to light a candle to honor their lost babies or their friend/family member's lost baby for at least an hour.  In this way, a continuous wave of light will shine throughout the world in honor of all the lost babies who never had a chance to live.  T and I plan to participate and honor our two lost little beans.  We encourage our friends and family members to also participate in honor of their own lost ones and all the lost ones throughout the world.  Please go to http://www.october15th.com/ for more information.  I found this lovely video on that site.
