Australia Day - 26th January 2011

Another Australia Day and with it a new "Australian of the Year".

We should also remember the thousand of Aussies who also put themselves second when helping others - the ones who never get recognition.

For instance, a dear friend of ours who, despite being ill (she never tells us how ill she really is, but we can tell!) has put so much time and effort into helping others that a government department has stopped her Pension. Blind bureaucratic stupidity - did the person who did that not realise how much Australia owes to volunteers? Apparently not.

What a lucky country, indeed!
