Note: While this news report states that the death toll is around 60, we have news reports already this morning that the toll has risen to 108. And there are still areas that haven't been explored yet.
This makes me feel so devastated and sick to my stomach. Places that I visited just a week or two ago are completely gone. So many people have lost everything, and too many people have lost their lives.
When I saw the dust/smoke cloud coming over the eastern suburbs on Saturday, I got this horrible feeling in my gut that something was very wrong. I only wish I could have been wrong.
This is definitely a time for all Victorians - and Australians - to pull together and support each other. I may not be a citizen yet, but this is my home country, my home state, and my heart aches for all the people who have lost so much.
