Our hearts go out to those living in forest fire conditions around the globe. After the tragedies at Slave Lake and Fort McMurray, Alberta, we all realize how tenuous life can be amid the summer forests. For those in fire zones, our wish for you is rain, low winds and relief from the heat. Stay safe.
Second Hand Smoke
We hear sad news stories day after day,
forest fires are burning far and away.
We have been through this in previous years,
Living anxiously, living in great fear.
Each summer, Canada’s forests will burn,
one year in Alberta, then BC’s turn.
But even here to the East, it’s no joke,
While western forests burn, we smell the smoke.
