For those of you living in Calgary, or those of you with access to a news source of some kind, you know about the tragic circumstances that my lovely city, this beautiful province, and all of its people have been facing over the last 48 hours, with certainly more hardships to come. We are, in a word, waterlogged.
But I’d like to say that amongst the fear, the angst, the frustration, and the helplessness that we have all seen and experienced, to varying degrees, over the last two days, I am proud to read all the offers of volunteerism, donations, and well-wishing that are flooding social media tools and news stories. We as a city, a province, and in the coming days even as a country, have come together to get each other through.
It’s a beautiful thing. And it gives me hope.
Keep smiling, all. And keep up the good work.
