My heart goes out to those affected by the weekend's tragic fires. I cannot imagine what you are going through, emotionally (the loss of family, friends and animals), physically (injuries and exhaustion) and practically (the loss of homes and possessions). We must all do our bit to help. To donate much-needed funds go to the Australian Red Cross website, phone 1800 811 700 or go to your local bank (NAB, ANZ, Commonwealth and Bendigo Bank are all participating — I'm sure many more are too). Do what you can.
