Our current government is trying to undo many of the structures that support our society but governments come and go. This lot won't last long; we just need to wait it out until we can have our say again. That's the joy of democracy - the jostling of opinions. Yet, we make it work.
This land is harsh - we have searing temperatures, droughts, regular bushfires and floods and wild storms. We often see tragedies caused by these events. Yet, we make it work.
Living in Australia is a privilege. Every day, I am thankful that I was born in this country. It's worth remembering that when times seem tough.
I love you Australia, completely and unreservedly. I'm grateful we can celebrate Australia Day together.
