Christmas lights to go dark for memoriam

Posted: Updated:
OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

Many in the Tri-State are looking for a way to acknowledge and remember the tragedy in Connecticut, and the city of Owensboro may have just come up with a silent but effective way to show your thoughts are with Newtown.

Here's the press release they just sent out: "On Friday, December 14, 2012 a terrible tragedy occurred in Newtown, Connecticut when 20 children and six adults lost their lives in a senseless act of violence at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

As a symbol of compassion for those individuals who lost their lives and for those they leave behind, the City of Owensboro will turn off all Christmas lights for one night on Wednesday, December 19. The Owensboro Board of Commissioners asks that all citizens join in doing the same."

Other local communities may join in the memoriam.
