Amid a statewide stay-at-home order, beacons of light are shining at night in Pueblo. 

Pueblo firefighters, law enforcement officers and families are pointing lights toward the sky each night, and they're posting photos to social media under the hashtag #PuebloShines. 

It's a symbol of unity and a bright future as the community faces the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, says Pueblo mayor Nick Gradisar.

"To show we're all in this together, that we're thinking of each other, even though we're staying apart and staying at home," he says. "This is something we can do to show that we're all together in this fight."

Puebloans are encouraged to shine lights upwards for two minutes each night at 8 p.m. through April 12.
