Fire

The heat’s been on this summer, with heatwaves across most of the country. Over the weekend, there were devastating bushfires in Victoria. So far 108 people have been confirmed dead with the toll rising, and over 750 homes lost. Yesterday I wept in the pub as the news showed a story about a man who burned to death in his home. Confined to a wheelchair, the man’s next door neighbours had knocked on the door as they escaped, and figured he must have already been evacuated when he didn’t answer. He hadn’t, and he died there in his chair. And in the north of Queensland, there are floods. Something’s gotta give, and soon.

Please send positive thoughts / karma / prayers – whatever your deal is – for all the Aussie firefighters this week. They need all the help they can get.
