A Light for Aleppo is being run by the University of Edinburgh. They are encouraging communities and individuals wherever they are to light beacons or candles at 5pm (GMT) on Sunday 20 Nov, as signs of vigilance and hope.
Their intention is for the coastlines of East Lothian and Fife to be lit up, leading out from Edinburgh, and also that beacons of light could spread around Scottish coastlines, inland, and to anywhere in the world.
They have so far had a good response from coastal, island and inland regions and from around the world, 34 events in 8 countries. In this way, a path of light might well reach from here to Aleppo, or at least to Syrian borders, and spread hope, and may even help save lives.
