Tuesday SOL


Today is the Tuesday Slice of Life – the weekly writing challenge host”Two Writing Teachers”.


This has been an incredibly sad time in Canada the past few days. You probably heard about  the tragic accident that occurred in Saskatchewan on Friday evening. Although the exact cause has not been ruled yet, a westbound transport truck struck the northbound bus carrying 29 members of the Humboldt Broncos team. 15 lives lost, 14 hospitalized.

Canada is a hockey nation and this hit so many of us, especially those of us who have/ had children who travel to attend sports games. It is unimaginable the pain and suffering of so many.

Brian Munz, a broadcaster, shared a photo of a hockey stick – with the message “the boys might need it – wherever they are.” And so was born #PutYourStickOut. I finally found one and put ours out. Hope there is a rousing hockey game in heaven.



There was an event today that brought a smile and had us sling to find a place to get some pictures of the final taping of “The Handmaid’s Tale” here in Cambridge.  A bit exciting for sure.

  1. Accidents are always so tragic and when young people who should still have a long life ahead of them are victims it is doubly tragic. I know there were many thoughts and prayers sent to all. How exciting to get those pictures. Wow.

  2. What an incredibly sad time for everyone. We had a similar tragedy when I was in high school in the 80s where a nearby high school wrestling team was returning from a weekend meet. There were very few survivors. This sort of thing brings a community to its knees, doesn’t it? It’s nice to have social media to share the grieving process. Thank you for your post.
