Unhappy Victoria Fires

This has been a sad couple of days in Australia.
As some of you may have heard, massive fires broke out in Victoria, killing hundreds of people, leaving around 1,000 homes destroyed and leaving over 80 people missing. My friend and her family was one of the families that lost their lives.

The smoke was ghastly, as it even reached New Zealand. This disaster is the worst natural (or so we think) disaster that Australia has ever faced. The fire is the worst that the world had ever seen.
I encourage you all do pray for the people that had been effected by the fires, they have lost everything.

(Notice that I'm not using my usual pink text.)

I'm sorry, Pandy.
Yes, indeed this is has been a dark couple of days for Australians.
So many homes and families have been influenced by the fires. I'll try to upload the Hamish and Andy podcast about this.

Here's something to give you an idea about the poeple who lost something in the blazes and the lovely people who donated money to the appeal hosted by famous, Australian radio show hosts, Hamish & Andy.

There are around 10-20 fires still blazing as I type this, but a lot of them are controlled.

Guys, I just saw on a news update that the fires were deliberately lit. Why would someone do that?

That's so sad... I don't know anybody who was affected, but I've certainly heard a lot about this. Unfortunately, the fires were deliberately lit, and you're right, Pandy, I don't understand how anybody could live with themselves if they knew they caused so much devastation and heartbreak. They will be brought to justice, however, I have faith in our federal agents and state police forces enough for that. They know they were, there was a witness who saw them light the fires. My utmost condolences in regard to your friends, Pandy Bear. It's hard to realise that you won't ever see someone again, until we're all reunited in heaven. But, although some people may think this is a cliche, I think your friend would want you to move on, but never forget her/him.

Once the person(s) are brought to justice, the government has been stated that they will be charged with over two hundreds counts of murder, probably with a life sentence for each. Judging by the fact that one life sentence equates to twenty-five years, that means that they'll have earned themself(ves) roughly five thousand years in jail.

Even the Prime Minister himself, who is normally a placid man, has stated that his personal opinion on the matter is, and I quote, "Whoever did this should rot in jail". When they catch them, they will never, ever be released, and for good reason.

I am so sorry for your friend, Pandy. I don't know what you're religious beliefs are, or even if you have any, but I'm sure if you and your friend were members of the same one, you'll meet up in heaven (if your religion believes in heaven). ...That was slightly confusing.

Either way, this is a time for Australia. Most of you overseas will probably find it difficult to believe just how massive and staggering a blow this is to Australia. It is the worst disaster and death toll Australia has ever seen in peacetime, but you really have to grasp that it can get this hot. It can people, and it is.

On the plus side, Pandy, I think you live in Australia, so me and Alloftheabove aren't the only ones anymore. We all have to try and find a postive in these tough times, otherwise we'll all become pessimists and be a very sad country.

My sincerest condolences, Pandy. I hope you're ok.

^^ What he said.
To all Australians: Go to Coles on Friday the 13th of February and buy as much as you need, because all of the money that Coles makes, will go to the Victoria victims.
