Slave Lake

Just over a week ago the lives of people in the small northern town of Slave Lake changed forever.  A wildfire spread through the town and destroyed almost 1/2 of the buildings and homes.  Honestly, I'm not sure how one moves on from this but they have vowed they will.  I found this video a few days ago and it brought me to tears.

Most of these people where left with nothing because of being evacuated with only a few moments notice but I'm so pleased to see Canadians and particularly Albertans coming to their aid.  We definitely look after our own in times of need.

Mother Nature certainly has not been kind this year.  My prayers and thoughts are also with the people in Joplin, MO after a devastating tornado hit their city yesterday.

Very powerful! Prayers to all the people in Slave lake! I too am so saddened by all the devastation our world is facing. It is hopeful to see the innate goodness of humankind.
