My heart has been tugged this way and that, this week with the tragedy that is of the fire victims this week in Victoria, Australia.
Some of the people that perished this week were some of the first to give to our flood victims when we hit the news overseas. I for one will never forget that they gave so freely only to die in an inferno a month after they poured their sympathies out for us.
What do you say? There are no words for needless tragedies such as this.
In the same breath I have been following with interest the court case of Rabaka's killers.
In the spirit of justice, I say that I ain't holding my breath in this case of the policemen/ soldiers before the courts right now accused of killing Rabaka - after all, corn can't expect justice from a court composed of chickens.
These people are terrorists.
Just like the arsonists that caused the needless deaths of 100's in Australia, both did what they did deliberately.
Both knew what the potential risks were and both caused colossal amounts of physical, emotional, economical and cerebral damage within the community and in the nation's consciousness.
Either way they are both the enemy within.
