28 unsuspecting people on a bus, jubilantly headed for what they hoped to be more celebration. Instead, they were met with fear, tragedy and a glimmering hope. A tractor trailer and a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey League Team from the western Canada’s Saskatchewan province collided just north of Tisdale. While some lives hang in the balance, life will never be the same for those involved. There’s no going back, and going forward won’t be easy, but it can and will come in time. Community will now step in as will those around the world. You don’t have to know someone to care or grieve for loss. Tragedy, pulls at your heartstrings, it makes you want and hope for change. It makes you realize just how precious life is and what is and isn’t necessary. What’s important now, is being there for all those who lost someone or has someone in recovery. Support those in mourning in whatever way you can. Strength comes from love and support. Time heals all wounds.
We love you Saskatchewan!
