Symbolism of a candle

The burning flame of a candle.  A symbol of ongoing peace, hope and faith.   A source of light and warmth.  I stare at the candle burning away on my benchtop.  I feel a mixture of disappointment, sadness, and fear for the future outside my home walls with so much ongoing unrest, arguments and disputes. Yet,  I struggle to understand the arguments, the resistance, the stupidity.  My candle is going out.  Must we destroy everything?
