As I sit here, writing this letter to you, it’s not done without guilt and sadness. & before I carry on, I need to apologise — I’m so fucking sorry, Australia!!
And, it wasn't until our New Zealand skies turned hazey yellowy, orangey, reddish; that I started to think & realise... holy fuck! It's more than just a typical Australia fire!!!
I’m sorry because, I’ve been ignorant and I made sure to be absent from knowing any information about the situation.
I've avoided as much as I could, to protect my own empathetic little heart. But, Facebook had other ideas and still managed to expose me to the red monster and the devastation it has and still continues to cause.
Heartbroken is an understatement...
My ignorance brushed off and sugarcoated the severity of it all... It was for my own selfish reasons.
My soul literally can not handle the despair, the ache, the brokenness ---For this I am sorry, Australia!
And, I know our countries have always given each other shit, and I know we’ve always competed against each other, but through this horrific time --We need to stand together! What I hope for even more is that, the rest of the world comes to help too!
As I sit here, for the first time and read the only article I've found that, I can bare to endure, I feel the words! I feel the desparate plea's. I feel the rage, not of the red-monster
but of the people, of the animals, of Australia themselves.
I know I'm a nobody and I can't do anything. & I know my letter probably wont reach Australia, & my donation wasn't in the millions, & my tears aren't enough to rid' the red-monster and it's flames. I really don't have anything to offer. I'm helpless ---For this, I am truely sorry! I hope like fuck there are options, ways, solutions, HELP there or coming in full force to conquer that motherfucker!!!
Now, I read something that touches on the Australian Govt. I definitely don't have the knowledge to comment, and probably no right too, BUT! you know what?! Fuck it!! Because this isn't just a tiny fire, this isn't just a house on fire, this isn't just a small, under control tree fire, this isn't something any human or animal can escape on their own! Which brings me to ask...
--DEAR AUSTRALIA'S P.M/GOVT.! YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU, WHERE ARE YOU? ARE YOU LISTENING TO YOUR COUNTRY? ARE YOU DOING EVERYTHING YOU POSSIBLY CAN TO SAVE YOUR COUNTRY? OR ARE YOU SITTING BACK,
NICE & SAFE FROM THE RED-MONSTER??!
P.S - HELP SAVE YOUR BURNING COUNTRY!!!
Pss - I am so fucking, whole-heartedly SORRY, Australia!!
- me, a nobody in New Zealand.
