[B]The Four Candles burned slowly. Their Ambiance was so soft you could hear them speak...[/B]

[B]The first candle said, "I Am Peace, but these days, nobody wants to keep me lit."[/B]

[B]Then Peace's flame slowly diminishes and goes out completely.[/B]

[B]The second candle says, "I Am Faith, but these days, I am no longer indispensable."[/B]

[B]Then Faith's flame slowly diminishes and goes out completely.[/B]

[B]Sadly the third candle spoke, "I Am Love and I haven't the strength to stay lit any longer." "People put me aside and don't understand my importance. They even forget to love those who are nearest to them."[/B]

[B]And waiting no longer, Love goes out completely.[/B]

[B]Suddenly...[/B]

[B]A child enters the room and sees the three candles no longer burning.[/B]

[B]The child begins to cry, "Why are you not burning? You are supposed to stay lit until the end."[/B]

[B]Then the Fourth Candle spoke gently to the little boy, "Don't be afraid, for I Am Hope, and while I still burn, we can re-light the other candles."[/B]

[B]With Shining eyes the child took the Candle of Hope and lit the other three candles.[/B]

[B]Never let the Flame of Hope go out of your life.[/B]

[B]With Hope, no matter how bad things look and are...Peace, Faith and Love can Shine Brightly in our lives.[/B]
