Candles glowing on a December night.  Shining light in the darkness, a message Wendy Skratt describes.  

 

"Hope.  The light of hope."

 

Skratt is a member of the ENOUGH Campaign - a gun violence prevention advocacy group in Connecticut.  It was formed immediately following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School almost one year ago. 

 

"Our hope is to reduce the violence and the loss," said Skratt, a member of the ENOUGH campaign who organized the vigil.  

 

"We have all been affected and we're finding a lot of strength in just being together and talking about it," said Marni Amsellem, a member of the ENOUGH Campaign.  

 

The concerned mothers who started the campaign believe in Empowering Nonviolent Opposition to Unnecessary Guns in Homes - what ENOUGH stands for.  

 

Holding candles and quiet conversations Thursday, they paused to remember the lives that were lost December 14.

 

The vigil was held in front of the Ferguson Library downtown Stamford.
