in the spotlight

As some of you might have seen, Vancouver was torn apart by rioters last night after the Canucks lost to the Boston Bruins. I am so saddened and astonished by the behaviour displayed after last night's game. Vancouver is such a beautiful city and it breaks my heart to see the after-math today. As a teacher it is rather dis-heartening to know that all of the hard work we put into teaching social responsibility is lost on quite a few. This behaviour will be a black eye on Vancouver for a long time. I am not as proud to be living here today as I was yesterday. 

Congratulations to the Boston Bruins on a terrific win, and to the Vancouver Canucks for making it to the Stanley Cup play-offs, a huge accomplishment! 

With a sad heart, 

xo, allie
