The horror. The horror...

Wow.
I am grateful this morning that J still has a job. The company he works for fired 500 people yesterday. 84 locally -Over half of the people employed here in Saskatoon are GONE. We figured something was up but we had no idea how massive the reorganization would be. J and his immediate coworkers are still there, but it is a very somber thing to see many people you know just immediately gone...it will not be the same place to work anymore. Two years ago they flew all the employees and their spouses to Calgary for the day for a dinner and concert. Yesterday this. How things have changed...
Today I am grateful.
