I was inspired to create my first 'Lights to Honor' when the by the Covid 19 pandemic hit America hard in March 2020. First, I built the wood love sculpture based upon the love sculptures in Philadelphia, New York City, etc. and it grew from there. When Charlotte honored first responders with green lights and then purple for health care workers, I thought it would be great to do the same.
I was able to convert part of my Christmas light display, 'Lights of Joy' , into something even more meaningful!
I was honored myself when I was featured on the front page of the Sunday Independent Tribune!
