There are heroes among the disaster today
To give of themselves even at their risk as they are givers
This disaster is not just about stuff but now how to people live
These individuals have a new normal for there work, rest and play.
I feel a closeness to what is happening out there
You see I used to live in Calgary and travel around those surrounding areas so I care
My heart and compassion for the ravaged area is there.
May we do all that we can to help
May we not be selfish and look within
For being uncaring would be a sin
For at one time or another we all need help.
This disaster is not in a far off land
The Southern Alberta flooding is a plausible call
It is our choice to rise up today
Let each one of us be of good courage and be used in any way
So rise up when you are given the call.
