Natural Disasters

October 19, 2013 Comments off

This is an “off-topic” post that has no purpose other than to say I hope those who are caught in the disaster that is sweeping through NSW remain safe. Many years ago I used to live near some of the locations that have wild fires surrounding them and had many friends and/or family nearby. My friends have moved on and most of my family have to but the danger is still there for people who live there now.

Australia, New Zealand, PNG, and the Pacific Islands have had a really rough time in the last decade or so. Droughts, floods, fires, earthquakes, Tsunamis, Cyclones, etc. have all left their mark on our fair nations but we do what we always do and get back into things as soon as possible. The never give up attitude is what makes our nations great and what makes us who we are. The way we help each other when we are hit hard is what friends do for each other.

If you are from an affected area (of any natural disaster) and you read this I want you to know the rest of us are thinking of you.
