Black Saturday...1 year on

Its now been a year since the devastating bush fires in Victoria on 7 Feb 2009 that claimed many lives, and left yet numerous more homeless and dealing with the loss of their loved ones.

Today a memorial service was held in Melbourne, a moving service. I am still at a loss for words when I think about what they must still be going through. Losing someone you love and care about is never easy, and not something you can easily forget, especially when it is under such shocking circumstances.

To borrow the words of the head of the Bushfire Reconstruction and Recovery Authority Christine Nixon:

"We are here to remember all those who lost their lives," "The worst national disaster in Australia's history has left an indelible scar on families, friends, neighbours and relatives and strangers across the world. People have seen and heard things they hope never to see again."

Our thoughts are with all the victims, their families and loved ones.
