On Thursday, December 20, 2012 the Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno hosted a candlelight prayer vigil for the victims of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. A number of faith, peace, and community groups collaborated to organize the event. Dr. Su Kapoor was a chief organizer.
The gold candle represented hope. Participants each lit their candle from the candle of hope and then carried it into the world.
