It just gets worse........

After watching the late news today I was both appalled & disgusted to hear that looting has broken out in some of the fire revenged areas in Victoria. People (actually I feel they deserve to be called scum) have been going into the homes that are still standing & helping themselves to whatever they want. I just cannot believe this despicable act can happen in Australia, good god haven't these poor souls been put through enough without this happening to them, it just sickens me to the core. I just hope these low lives are caught & severely dealt with.

In huge contrast $10 million has so far been donated from all around Australia. It just shows when times are getting tough financially in this country people open their hearts & give what they can, they just want to help whatever way they can.

131 people have now lost their lives....

I have been watching this news closely. It sickens me to know that these are now murders because of an arsonist. I hate to think ill thoughts on anyone but this taxes me. I feel horrible for you aussie's.

God's speed to those moving out of harms way and prayers to those families and friends who have lost.

My friends firey husband arrived there last night and rang her to say it is just unimaginable.
And this is a guy who has always been a fireman.
Loss is huge.
I hate theft in any form...Disgusting!
But from these poor surviving battled souls! Disgraceful

Could it get any worse?! I feel that I have to watch as much of the news as possible so that my tears take away just a small amount of pain for someone! I'm thinking of all the burns patients and the burns Dr I saw in tears on the TV last night. He said they were the worst injuries he had ever seen, worse that war injuries.. oh heartache... the long recovery some of these poor people will have. A-M xx PS thank you for your constant support over at my place... you have been a wonderful blog friend!

When they catch the mongrels that are looting, they should take them in to the middle of town & bring back public stoning....
