You have heard the saying, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". It seems that the last several months in Alberta have proved that saying over and over as various things happen to people. Fires, layoffs, tragedies, giving up homes because mortgages cannot be met, being displaced, facing disease, and the list goes on.
I look at the firefighters that have been battling the fire around Fort Mac that they call "The Beast", and I say that these men must have found that place inside themselves where nothing is impossible for they are doing the impossible. They have created a change in the way that the fire behaves. They have fought and prayed, and called on Creator to help them. They are filled with positivity, with hope, even when everything is black and smoke filled. Wow.
