An increase of 1500% in 10 years...

That's an increase of child internet porn in the last 10 years...a statistic that nauseates me as I think of all the little ones I know and love; my neices and nephews, my friend's kids, the children I have taught, the children I've nannied, the children's hands I've held in Calcutta, in Sri Lanka...all so vulnerable. My friend John sent me this email. I hope you join us by lighting a candle. A favorite verse of mine is this: Light illuminates the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
(Make sure to watch the TV commercial...it's powerful.)

The innocent victims of Internet child abuse cannot speak for themselves.

But you can.

With your help, we can eradicate this evil trade.

We do not need your money.

We need you to light a candle in support of .

We're aiming to light at least One Million Candles by December 31, 2006.

This petition will be used to encourage governments, politicians, financial institutions, payment organisations, Internet service providers, technology companies and law enforcement agencies to eradicate the commercial viability of online child abuse.

They have the power to work together. You have the power to get them to take action.

Please light your candle at lightamillioncandles.com or send an email of support to light@lightamillioncandles.com.

Together, we can destroy the commercial viability of Internet child abuse sites that are destroying the lives of innocent children.
