Thanking this thanksgiving five Sikh men hikers

  • 26th Nov 2021

Dear Diary,

Thanksgiving is here! A celebration to count our blessings and harvest our honorable deeds.

This begins with taking a smart step by helping the people around us in whichever way possible. Our smarthugs are what make this world a better place.

The latest news about two tourists getting stranded in British Columbia’s Golden Ears Provincial Park shook me. But five smarthuggers rescued them and gave them another reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving.

The incident that became an adventure!

Two tourists got stranded at the Golden Ears Provincial Park, a park in British Columbia, Canada, by the edge of a deep pool at the base of a thundering waterfall.

Luckily, five Sikh men who were “at the –right –spot –at –the –right time” rescued them with the help of their turbans.

These men, who were international students, assessed the situation, realized they were outside the mobile service area, and unwound their headgear to fish out the stranded tourists.

Count the blessings!

The victims of the disaster were rescued and relocated to a safe place. The park officials assessed their physical and mental conditions.

As luck would have it, neither of them needed any medical attention and were released with a stern warning.

What do we understand from this?

A small step and some compassion can save people’s lives.

The quick thinking of the Sikh men allowed them to save lives. If they had not been around or had looked the other way, it would have brought sad news.

This Thanksgiving, let us try to help people as much as we can to make it a wonderful day for everybody.

That is all I have for now!

I will write to you soon.

Take care.
