Victorian Bushfires

Thank you to all my overseas friends who have been concerned for my safety during the devastating bushfires here in Victoria, Australia.

I am very safe, probably around 2 hours drive from the nearest fires. To date, there are over 180 women, men and even children who have lost their lives in this disaster, hundreds and hundreds of homes have been gutted and contents destroyed, and countless domestic pets and wildlife has been lost. These communities have to rebuild from scratch.

Please spare a moment to think of these people and what turmoil they will be going through.
