HUMBOLDT STRONG


To be honest, I don’t really know how to start this post. I’m not even two sentences in, and my eyes are already watery. When this came out, the Jays were playing a game against the Rangers, so my undivided attention was watching the game. I didn’t hear about it until a few minutes after the game, and I saw Hazel’s retweet along the other tweets and retweets on my timeline like this from the Saskatchewan Hockey Association and Twitter moments. 


 


 


I can’t really put it into words about how I feel. I was obviously sad and worried about the players and the families, but also scared and nervous because this literally could happen to anyone. Reading these tweets and retweets on your timeline or watching the news breaks your heart. These sweet, beautiful, innocent lives were taken too soon. Players losing their family, their teammates, their brothers. I was reading some of the tweets of people who knew the players and I remember just crying in bed. They all had a bright future ahead of them. Some of them could’ve been competing for the Olympics or the NHL one day.

Travel make seem nice to some, but all modes of transportation is a scary experience. Every time I or someone leaves and go on a plane etc., I always pray for a safe flight and landing. I’m not 100% at ease until I know they are at home or at a hotel safe and sound, I need a quick phone call or text for reassurance they are safe. I can’t even imagine how the families, friends and the entire Humboldt community are feeling. Reading about the whole accident, watching the news, you can’t help but cry and want to do something to help them. Seeing players, not just in the hockey community, but also athletes in other sports and support from all over the world, the world is praying for Humboldt. 

Yesterday, I remember reading about those innocent lives lost and watching the Vigil. From reading about the Head Coach, Darcy Haugan to Logan Boulet and donating his organs, it was a beautiful way to for the world to learn and remember them.

Remembering all 15 victims of Humboldt Broncos

This is Canada. We all come together as a family at times like this. We’re here for each other.

While it will never be able to replace the pain and suffering, I’m thankful for all the people who started Go Fund Me pages to help support the families. Here are some ways we can all help the Humboldt Broncos and their families.
