On Friday, April 6th, a great tragedy took place in Canada when 15 young hockey players died and several others were seriously injured in a bus crash. As reported earlier, their bus collided with a semi-truck while they were traveling for a hockey tournament.
Since news of the devastating crash went public, several celebrities, politicians, and other public figures have expressed their condolences and prayers for the victims’ families. Among those who commented on the incident was “Fuller House” star Candace Cameron Bure.
As usual, Bure had a Biblical response offering her prayers. Additionally, she requested that her fans join her in donating to and praying for those affected by this tragic incident.
The actress has a heart for the game of hockey. Her husband of more than 10 years — Valeri Bure — played professional hockey for several years before he retired in 2005.
“My heart breaks for these junior hockey players, their families, coaches and community,” she said. “I donated (link in my bio) and am praying for all those involved in this terrible tragedy. Will you too?”
Others who released a public statement regarding the crash include President Donald Trump and the NHL commissioner.
