5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT A "LIGHTS ON" VIGIL:
1.) Any color porch lamp bulb will work. Blue has traditionally been used for law enforcement but plain white is certainly OK.
2.) Don't have a porch light? Place a candle or light in your window (please be careful when using a candle or use a flameless one)
3.) Shine your light nightly. We generally encourage folks to keep the vigil every night for a week following the incident and through memorial services.
4.) Invite your friends! The real strength of these events comes from encouraging your family, friends and co-workers to participate and the internet allows the support to be nationwide. Also, feel free to participate in multiple events simultaneously.
5.) Post pictures to the event wall of your observance. This is an encouragement to the family and friends of the fallen hero.
