Tragedy in Fort McMurray! Mother Nature, What Have You Done ? With Collective Effort, You Are Strong!!

Is nature taking its revenge ? She reminds us who is the boss!  It was overwhelming to watch the news.

I worked in Alberta many years ago. And let me tell you, I have been consumed with this  tragic  event in Fort McMurray. It never dawned on me that one day homes would be burned  by forest fires.

I could see on TV people lined up outside the Donation Distribution Centre  to pick up needed supplies. More than 80,000 residents were forced to flee for their lives.

How do you keep a good moral when thousands lost their houses?  Even firefighters who save those of their neighbours homes lost their homes.  They are brave, strong, courageous and they are fighters.

Businesses and individuals came up with their own plans to help people from offering free meals  or providing services  to evacuees. Many residents not under evacuation jumped in and helped out. You are strong with collective effort.

They will be an event June 29, 2016 at the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton to raise funds to help thousands of the residents recovering  from this disaster.

You will find a video that I prepared to raise money (unitedfortmcmurray.ca) and  to remind us how fragile we are to nature.
