Giving spirit goes viral

The selfless actions of a Drumheller man are going viral after he was spotted in the Drumheller Cemetery clearing graves.
Eric Dahl, known in the community for a campaign this summer where residents would wake up to a sticky note on their cars with affirming messages, saw the good he put out in the community, come back. This fall, he saw his house have a new roof installed, an effort led by Daniel Green. This week he continued to give back in his own unique way by cleaning some neglected grave sites of servicemen in the Drumheller Cemetery.
It appears he was spotted by a passerby who posted his photo on social media and it spread like wildfire. When it was posted to the Military Minds Facebook page it really took off. In a Facebook post today Dahl said the photo had over 1 million views.
"This is extremely unexpected for me and I'm very humbled," posted Dahl. "I'm very grateful and I appreciate every single person who has taken a few seconds of their life to check it out. To those who left words of encouragement, I can't say thank you enough. I never dreamed this is the way this would unfold. To the military personnel, past and present from all over this globe, that have contacted me, it is you especially that I carry this on for."
According to its website The Military Minds Inc is an active, connected membership that does not create programs or services, but instead helps connect its members to those very programs and services that fulfill their needs.
