49 lives lost,
650 homes destroyed,
Countless amounts of land, countless amounts of wildlife. All gone.
These are the tolls of the fires that have razed Victoria in the past 24 hours. Worse than the Ash Wednesday Fires in 1983 which took 47 lives in Victoria, 75 lives in total. They weren’t prepared then, they were prepared now…imagine if they hadn’t been.
The community where our church has visited every year for the past three years for our annual camp? 80% destroyed.
An accident? Not entirely.
There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind, that in a land like ours, fire-fighters are our heroes. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you so much for what you do.
If you don’t know what I am talking about it. If you don’t live in a place where summer fires are a cause of real anxiety and concern each year. Go here.
