Memories from July 31, 1987…

David Gold:

“One memory for me was our late Mayor Laurence Decore olding back tears while he was interviewed on TV. Ourr answer to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Both trying to show leadership in the face of tragedy. What courage.”

Please share your comments from July 31, 1987.

 

 

 

Rays of light through Black Friday

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.
