14 Apr #WeAreBroncos
Most people here will know me as a musician and music teacher. You may also know how much I love Canada and hockey. I am part of the worldwide hockey community.
Last Friday, 15 people died after a collision between a junior hockey team’s bus and a semi-truck in rural Saskatchewan, Canada. 14 more were severely injured, and one of those died yesterday. The team, the Humboldt Broncos, was on its way to a playoff game.
Since then, support has been pouring in from all over the world. The incident made it to the German news on Saturday. Canada is a hockey community, and I consider myself part of it. Soon after the accident, support for the Broncos poured in from all over Canada. So pretty much everybody has put a hockey stick out their front door in support #putoursticksout , there was a #jerseysforhumboldt in support of the Humboldt Broncos, people are dressing up their garages https://twitter.com/TornadoGreg/status/984529229869080576 , and a Humboldt resident set up a fundraising campaign that raised over 10 Million CDN within 7 days. (Wanna be part of this? Donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/funds-for-humboldt-broncos This reflects well how tight the Canadian hockey community is.
You can bet I have a hockey stick at my front door. I also made a donation. And that I post pictures of hockey related items in gold and green – the Broncos team colours. I care about those things, and I will support this cause wit all my heart – like everything else I do. It is my business as it is every other Canadian’s, hockey player’s or human being’s.
