Two years later and I still don’t have the words to describe this. We still remember all 16 of the victims, the 13 survivors, and the families of all involved. I can’t imagine what it feels like to be the parent or billet of any of the players or the spouse/partner or child of any of the staff who died. My thoughts are with the first responders, police officers, doctors, and nurses who dealt with the injured and the casualties. Your mental health is in my prayers.
Living in a town of 600 people where we lost one of our own in this crash, this struck close to home. There have been very few days in the last two years where I haven’t thought about the boys, men, and woman who died in this crash and their families as well as the survivors and their families. My heart goes out to the truck driver who is responsible for this accident. He did not wake up that morning and think “I’m going to destroy as many lives as possible today.” One mistake permanently ruined his life too as he has to live the rest of his life with this on his conscience.
This day and the memory of those who died will never be forgotten in the hockey world, in Saskatchewan, or in Canada. My love to all effected by the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
