My friend,

If you were in the Edmonton area 30 years ago today, you will know exaclty where you were in the afternoon: the day when the 1987 tornado ripped through Edmonton. It was terrible. It  was horrific. It was civic carnage like we’ve never seen before.

Yet, through the terror, God’s love and wisdom help all of us, from firefighters, police officers, and other medical personell to friends and neighbors who came together. To help. To support And to love.

And that’s what we should try to embrace today.
