Remember HelenHelen was a candle. Though small and often taken for granted, she released one of the greatest things on earth: light. She has helped us all find our way along darkened paths with that warm little flame. And now that that flame has been put out, never to shine upon us again, the entire world has dimmed a little. None of us have the power of fire, to bring her back to us now that she is gone. Though the candle is still there, it holds no life. It lays cold and alone, separate from us. We must now learn to keep her alive in our hearts, to remember that flame – the one that never flickered, nor faltered – a flame that though could have scorched us all, never did. The fire is gone, but the glow from that candle will live on inside each and every one of us. Remember Helen.
