Overwhelming Support from around the World – and it could happen to anyone


It is really amazing and heart warming to see how the news of devastation is reaching the far corners in the world thanks to the internet & social media with regards to the fires in Northern Alberta.

At work today I read letters of support from branch offices in Europe and Asia and it really makes me proud and choked-up at the same time.

I was really struck by the end of one note:

Support for Alberta and Those Affected by the Fort McMurray Fires from Asia Pacific –

“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.” – Vietnamese saying

Also on social media help is pouring in from all over

Yesterday at our monthly meeting my manager showed this video and again it home at how easily it could happen to anyone of us and would we have enough time to even think what should I take with me before needing to hop in the car and drive away…without knowing what you will come home to or when…
