Remembering Black Saturday

07/02/2010

Today is the first anniversary of Australia’s worst natural disaster – the Black Saturday bushfires.

When tragedy like this strikes it makes the headlines and many of us are motivated to do what we can to help, but most of us then get on with our lives.

In remembering the 173 people who died, I’m also reminded of their families and friends for whom life will never be the same again.

UPDATE:

Deborah also rembers at In A Strange Land with links to Black Saturday  and Ashes   from Spilt Milk who lives on the edge of the area which was devastated and whose husband was fighting the fire.
