Canadian Hockey Hero’s

I was in grade 9 and resided in a small town outside of Ottawa. Our high school had brought in a few televisions to place around the cafeteria so that all the students could watch the game. I was part of our school’s track team and unfortunately we were having practice while the game was being played. I remember running the track and hearing the eruption of cheers in the cafeteria. We raced in to catch the replay and all the commentary. The students went crazy – it was such an incredible moment that brought everyone together, not just in our cafeteria – but across the entire country. I remember for the first time in my life that I was so proud to be Canadian. It was an incredible feeling. Will never forget it.
