We lit 26 luminaries in memory of those that lost their lives just over a week ago. So much to be thankful for.—

Many people tonight are lighting 26 candles for the victims of the Newtown shooting, and pictures are pouring in on Twitter. The most prominent vigils are in Connecticut, where the shooting took place, but we found plenty of pictures from all across America. This is one of the most touching things we’ve seen in a while, and seeing as we normally cover the murky backwaters of the Twitterverse, it’s nice to see a wholesome meme for once. Thanks so much to everyone who did this, and Merry Christmas.
