Hope you’re all going ok 😊.
If you were flying in or near Sydney, Canberra, or Melbourne, you might’ve endured very poor weather conditions. Namely, poor visibility. Make no mistake: this is not mere fog, but is a result of the ongoing bushfires (otherwise referred to as wildfires) on the east coast of Australia.
Heartbreakingly, these bushfires have been deadly, killing at least 3 volunteer firefighters, and injuring many more. Additionally, lots of land has been burnt and hundreds of property, including possessions, burnt too.
I would like to send my heartfelt condolences to the lives lost and can hope and pray and their loved ones will embrace the generous spirit of those wanting to help. This comes at a time when people made the ultimate sacrifice to help others. And we’re nothing but truly grateful for that. Thank you!!
I’ve come across an article that lists how you can help: https://www.smh.com.au/national/here-s-how-you-can-help-australia-s-bushfire-victims-20200104-p53ot2.html
It’s a truly fantastic article and I encourage you to have a read, and if you can, to please donate.
If you know someone affected by these fires, please reach out to them. And if you are impacted and need help, please reach out for help. Whether it be to me privately, PLEASE get help if you need it. We are united with you in spirit.
To all those impacted, directly or indirectly, we hope that you are safe. Please remain hopeful knowing that this tragedy will eventually end. And please intensify your lasting courage, tenacity, strength, endurance as have been been for the past few months, showing that you’re a beacon of hope in a seemingly hopeless place.
It’s times like these were reminded of what humanity represents. Whether it be those unaffected by the fires who generously support those affected, to the fire fighters being sent from the USA, Canada, the fire fighters working tirelessly on the ground to defend and protect property and lives, I can not be prouder to be an Aussie, knowing that there are people globally who open their hearts to share their beacon of hope.
Thanks so much!!!
