The Humboldt Broncos Tragedy – This Tragedy Will Never Make Any Sense
My heart goes out to all of those affected by the tragic accident involving the loss of life and injuries of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team. Hockey is in the DNA of Canadians and in towns like Humboldt the local team is especially important and receives extraordinary support.
In particular, to the immediate family …. parents, siblings, and other direct family members of those lost and injured. Especially to those who have lost a loved one.
Also, to the billets of these young players. These are wonderful people who take these young hockey players into their homes and look after them as if they are their own children. Most do not realize how special these people are.
To the unpaid volunteers (trainers, equipment managers, ticket takers and many more) who faithfully support the team.
To the fans and supporters who may be sponsor, a season ticket holder or a fan who supports and cheers on the team.
To those who are deeply touched and trying to comprehend this tragedy.
This tragedy will never make any sense. Don’t even try. Do your best to support each other and do your best to make sure that those lost are remembered. Those that are gone can no longer shape their legacy … it’s up to those that remain to make sure they are not forgotten.
