Extreme weather in Vic expect Mon night & Tues. High wind & fire risk. Listen to Local ABC Radio for emergency updates. Do not reply to this message
There were many more messages (32 in all) but they were obviously in reply to messages I sent out and they would make little sense because they are out of context.
That period of time for about 3 months was a blur – little existed in my life except work and struggling to cope with what I saw and what I did and the difference I supposedly made. I can’t believe that one person (me) made any difference, but apparently I did.
Stay safe this summer and remember don’t take life for granted – it has more value than money.
