Australia's Worst Bushfires Ever
Ever since coming to Australia, I've since become very familiar with the term "bushfire". For us in the near suburbs of the big cities, bushfires are what happens to country towns.
But now, as the extent if Australia's largest and worse ever bushfires is being known, with over 130 people already deceased, bushfires is no longer what happens to other towns, it is what happens to all Australians.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone whose lost homes or loved ones to this horrific disaster.
