Fear

Two beautiful people I know live in one of the towns ravaged by the bushfires, a town where so far 22 people are confirmed dead. Two beautiful people, whose surnames I don't know and who I cannot contact or trace.

I have no way of tracking them down, no way of finding out if they are ok. I can only wait until the clean-up is finished and the bodies are all identified. Then I can find out if they are amongst the dead.

At this point, there is nothing more I can do. I feel sick in the guts.

Big {{HUGS}} across the miles, I've seen pictures of koalas drinking out of water bottles, one had burns on it's padded feet. Sending you prayers that your friends are okay, the hardest part is not knowing.
