As we are consumed by media coverage and haunted by the bus-semi crash that killed 15 Humboldt Bronco hockey players and staff last week, the victims of another bus crash are deserving of our thoughts and prayers, too. It was a small item in the paper, but no less horrific. 27 people, 23 of them children between the ages of 4 and 12, were killed when a private school bus carrying 34 people went off a cliff in India. As we grieve for our Canadians, and think fervently hopeful thoughts for those injured and affected, it’s a gesture of shared humanity that we take a moment to think of families on the other side of the world and extend our compassion to them, too.
Good wishes to my one and only. I just wish I had inherited the same fashion sense as did my big brother Nels.
