Margaret River Fires - Community

I woke this morning with thoughts of Community. The words of Dorothea MacKellar's poem, My Country, and Rolf Harris's song 'Two Little Boys' in my head.

We have an amazing country full of joy, and conversely, heart ache & pain. At the moment across Australia we are experiencing fires and floods. So many communities are heavily impacted. But,what impresses me the most, is how people in every community pull together to help each other. It brings a tear to the eye and a lump to the throat.

I have found these two pieces for you. Dorothea reads her poem and it is accompanied by some interesting images. Rolf, sings his lovely song with also some emotive images. It's something to think about today (if not every day). And with that, say Thank You to every one whose hand touches another in their time of need.
