We live in a world of competition.
You love watching the Oilers compete on the ice.
Not always seen but still trying to deke around the other guy are business people and sales reps and anyone else who has to make the top numbers to stay employed.
Some call it a dog-eat-dog world, but that all comes to a crashing halt when disaster strikes.
When the wildfire hit Fort McMurray a year ago, people who lost their material possessions knew very quickly they were not alone.
Caring individuals loaded up on everything from water to cartons of diapers and went in search of those on the highway needing help.
Others provided food and shelter and everything else they could, at no charge. The jerry can angels could have made a good dollar on their gasoline but they refused the money.
Someone posted a message to evacuees saying, “Our thoughts and prayers are with you.”
Someone else posted, “Your thoughts and prayers are not enough, they need help.”
And help is what they got.
Let me know what help you received.
