As a parent, as a Canadian and as a human, I find the loss and injuries suffered towards the Humboldt Broncos deeply saddening. It is unimaginable what the families and surviving players are going through in these days following the crash, as the reality truly starts to set in.
It is the raw truth of how unexpected life can be. No one, not the players, coaches, parents, team mates, bus or truck driver woke up that morning believing that their day would be anything other than the ordinary.
One moment in time has effected a nation. And as Canadians, with hockey in our in our blood, we come together and support these families in anyway we can.
So tonight my home, along with so many others, have #PutYourSticksOut as we mourn the lives that have not only been taken but have forever been changed .
