It’s been a really tough day for Canadians. Personally, I’ve been glued to my iPhone for most of the day reading every possible story out of Ottawa I could get my hands on. It’s so sad. It’s terrifying. “What’s going to happen next?”, has been the question running through my mind all day.
I’ve also been feeling nervous about being on the air tonight. With the terrible events of today, I’ve been wondering what I’m going to say to you, the listener, that hasn’t already been said. Our hearts are all broken. How am I going to help comfort you if you are also feeling scared? I’m hoping we can all gather around the radio tonight, enjoy some great country music, and be thankful we live in this amazing country, but not forgetting today’s events.
I also wanted to share this video with you (above) that will make your heart burst with pride. The Pittsburgh Penguins honored Canada this evening by singing ‘O Canada’ before their game against the Philadelphia Flyers. Better yet, it sounds like the entire stadium sang along!
Also, rest peacefully Cpl. Nathan Cirillo.
