Young citizen rises to a challenge, but where was the help?
The other day, I was driving down Greig Drive Near the fitness park. A couple of good-sized trees had blown down during the night and we’re lying partially on the road.
What caught my eye was a young man, about 14, struggling, on his own, to move a 800-pound tree off the road so no one would hit it.
I sped to help the young man out and learned that his name was Bryce and he had recently moved here from B.C.
When I thanked him for his citizenship, he said, “Alberta’s been good to me, the least I can do is be good to her.”
Then he thanked me for stopping, saying that several people had driven past laughing at this kid trying to move a tree.
He was an amazing person to talk to, intelligent, soft spoken, and conscientious. And I’m sure he will grow into a fine man.
I just wanted to send this in as a thank you to Bryce for his act of service to his community.
