A candlelight vigil is being organized for tonight at 7 p.m. at Paradise Green.

The idea comes from Danielle Noel Hawthorne, who posted the following message on the Stratford Patch Facebook page.

"I'd like to propose that we gather together at Paradise Green in Stratford tonight at 7PM to hold a candlelight vigil in prayer and support of all of the families affected by this morning's tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School."

Hawthorne said she's heading to Home Depot "and any place else I have to go, to buy as many candles as possible."
