Candle Lit Vigil

Today was a day of not doing much of anything, and being it a Monday it was a nice relaxing day. Today was MLK day, and the university was closed so I didn’t do anything but study and lounge around.

This evening the SJI committee hosted a wonderful candle lit vigil in remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr. They had a great turnout, and it was a great program to attend.

It was a beautiful night for an outside program. It was sitting around 60 degrees, and for a January night, that’s almost unheard of. Although the weather was beautiful, the wind wasn’t on our side.

Here in Oklahoma they don’t lie about the wind sweeping across the plain. The wind was blowing hard, and if you’ve ever had a chance to try to hold al it candle with the wind blowing every which way you understand that it isn’t the easiest thing to do.

So the candle lit vigil ended up just being a vigil with no candles. That’s not to say we didn’t try but it just wasn’t going to happen.

I hope everyone had a great day, and want to say that I’m very for what Dr. King did for this country, and was very glad to see such a large group come to honor him.

Have a great night,
