‘Be the light’ for class of 2020

Coronavirus

COLORADO SPRINGS — As a nod to graduating seniors who aren’t getting the recognition they deserve in these dark times, Colorado Springs is coming together to turn on the light.

They are asking anyone individuals and businesses to turn on a light of any kind to show the support of the community for graduating seniors.

At 8:20 Wednesday night — turn on porch lights, bring out the flashlights, glow sticks, or anything you can do to show your support.

“Obviously we are really hoping this is a symbolic event, really connects the entire city together. Often the political climate that can be divisive, we feel that there is a lot of people who are hurting. The hope of this campaign for one night, we can get behind this group the city and support them and show our support in a visible way,” said Joe Hollmann with the city of Colorado Springs.
