It's true what they say, that bad times bring out the best in people. It was just a few weeks ago that I was complaining to my husband about how selfish and inconsiderate people are. And yet here we are, in the face of uncertainty, facing the worst crisis our little state of Victoria has ever seen, and all over the country people have banded together to give what they can. The last I heard, $23 million had been raised to help bushfire victims and families. Twenty. Three. MILLION. That is unbelievable, and totally overwhelming.
My faith in mankind has been restored.
