    Brenda Padilla along with Silver City MainStreet Project Manager Nick Seibel put together an "Act of Kindness" luminarias memorial for the victims who were killed in the Sandy Shooting. Padilla, a wife, mother and grandmother, took the opportunity to, "Show the kids of Silver City that there is goodness in the world and support for each other, " explained Padilla. Not only did Padilla help to put on the memorial but also went to each Silver City school and invited kids to write out a message on the brown paper bags used for the luminarias. People young and old come to the event to honor the lost and those who survived. A moment of silence was held as the bags lined up around the Gough Park gazebo glowed and music was played after a sign of hope and future.
