I don’t particularly like hockey and I sure don’t own a hockey stick. But I am a proud Canadian and a proud, sensitive person and the #SticksOutForHumboldt movement is getting me right in the feels. Today, as I am scanning through Twitter and Instagram, looking at all the photos of the hockey sticks (and a couple boat paddles) and a few headsets and microphones, leaning up against the doorways of people all across Canada, across the U.S.A. and across the world, I am reminded of how small a world this is.
This symbolic gesture to #putyoursticksout, ‘because the boys might need them,’ picked up steam after an emotional vigil Sunday evening at Elger Petersen Arena in Humboldt, the home of the Broncos.
In honour of the 15 Humboldt Broncos players and support staff killed in the tragic bus accident on April 6, in Saskatchewan, put your stick out.
