Total Devastation.....Bush Fires..
I had to post this here. We've had such a terrible disaster with Bush Fires raging through Victoria. Our state has just sent over a huge team of fire fighters to help along with 35 fire vehicles. As it stands tonight 5000 people are homeless, over 130 are dead and the toll is rising. Over 750 homes destroyed - that number is still rising too. Many are critically injured, some not expected to live. Over 40,000 hectarces are burnt. Not only human loss, pets, livestock and our wildlife. Its too sad to relate so much so, I had to turn my tv off Then this tiny little moment (photo by Russell Vickery) A blessing - look at the trust, a wild animal - the eye contact, an understanding, hand holding hand - comfort
