We are the exception to bad news stories which catch people’s attention. We stayed to fight our fire. We beat it at the front but an unseen ember ignited an inferno at the back. Another ember destroyed our exit gear and boat fuel down at the river, ready for an escape. We watched our house burn to the ground. We believe this was fortunate. Acceptance was the only option.
Australia’s going through some big changes and we’d love your help to make a record of life in this moment.
Tell us your story of COVID-19 or the 2019–20 bushfires. Share what worries you or gives you hope. Show us what you miss or how you’ve adapted.
Sharing your story — big or small, whatever you feel — captures a moment in time for all of us, to keep for future generations. It’s the story of this moment and it’s as precious as it is uniquely ours.
