I think everyplace in the world has been hit with tragety in some form or another,,,sonomees, volcanoes, hurricanes, fires, tornadoes, floods, then there is the violence. For those of us who believe in the word of God, we know there is more of this to come. Sometimes we do and say things in a moments time without realizing the impact it may have on others who are experience a tragety at that moment. For the person who is in the tragety,
things magnify more, for those who say things, they
do so because at THAT moment they are upset or questioning...I do not think anyone here is belitteling the events happening in your home area...It seems that everyone here is hurting on the amount of destruction that is taking place and many of heads are bowed and knees are lowered in an effort to somehow bring RELIEF,peace, love, support and help to you guys. I know my heart hurts and tears fall hearing what is happening there....I pray God answers our prayers soon for you///

Hear, hear !!!. I tend to agree with you. I just know we are all thinking of the poor people in Australia. It is really heartbreaking.

minnieb the last I heard on the news is over 200 deceased and as they are searching there will be more 176 confirmed and 50 more still not identified. May they rest with in peace and these people would of been terrified it would not of been a peaceful passing. And imangine what wild life and pets and livestock that were lost. It has cooled down here now but we still have the wind.

Yes, and worse still, the fire creates it's own wind.It is so scary.

My understanding of reports on TV the Federal Government is paying for the funerals. Although this will ease the finacial burden NOTHING will erase the memory from their hearts and minds. As a child of 12 years old my family was burnt out of our house (not by bushfire -which has to be 100 times as bad) and even to this day it is still fresh in my mind, and that was 52 years ago.

goverment is puting in $5000 it cost more than that for a funeral we know we had one late last year,we nearly lost our house about 8 years ago friends lost there house , where are you

I think we are all aware of the tradgides around us, and I don't think anyone has thier nickers in a knot. There are a few people who had some questions and they asked them . That's all it is plan and simple.

And the fire is still out of control...My God, this is so sad...and they need all kind of help now. I wonder if the donation collected until now, couldn't go to this cause, I saw on TV they've created a bank account specially for this. I'm sure Ms Loretta would gladly agree with it. Minnie, thank you for posting this, so thoughtful of you. Love&blessings, Yoriko.

Yoriko we can give money but it is never going to give these people back there loved ones it is sad , and at the moment they are in survival mode wait till the full impact hits them .
that is a great idea I didn't think of that ,
