the bush fires here have been horrible (as any person in australia would know and even some friends and family back home have contacted me after hearing about them on the news). its horrible seeing the number of deaths increasing every time i turn on the tv or computer (every time i log into yahoo i get the news briefs and at least 3/4 if not all the headlines are bushfire related). so many people have lost everything: home, family, friends, pets....
a lot of wildlife has also been killed or injured by the fires too
