Tree lighting honors children lost to violence

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A ceremony honoring children who have lost their lives to violence was held Tuesday night.

It was the second annual lighting of the Angel Tree in downtown Albuquerque.

Over the weekend, City Councilor Ken Sanchez and the biker group “Guardians of the Children” decorated the tree with ornaments for kids in the community who have died.

Sadly, the tree has 13 new ornaments. Families who did not get to add their children to the tree last year were added this year.
