Bushfire crises 2019/20

I don’t live near the bushfires but what I have seen on the news shocked me. Nearly 450 thousand hectares of bush farms and communities right across the country were left shocked after massive uncontrolled bushfires rages through their towns. Thousands of people were left shocked and confused, what was supposed to be a happy and joyful Christmas of 2019 left many people in Australia with no place to go. People today still don’t have a home to go to. This just makes me feel so sad, not just the people but the 30 million animals that have been affected. I feel for all those families who have lost loved ones on the fire front, whether it be fighting the fires, saving animals or trying to flee their homes and towns. I thank everyone who helped bring Australia back – those sports stars, the celebrities, the tv shows, news, charities, that helped Australians get back on their feet.
