I cried a little when I saw this on tv earlier and I wanted to share it with people, I guess. My parents are both Queenslanders originally, so I have family all over the state, including cousins in Ipswich, Brisbane, and Toowoomba. I'm grateful that they are alive and well even if it seems like their lives have been totally turned upside down.

There are people who have lost literally everything and it amazes me to see the humour and generosity that still prevails, even in the midst of the devastation. Every time I see a picture of somebody saving a kangaroo from the water I cry. This is the part of my country of which I can most consistently be proud, even if I spend all my time criticising it about absolutely everything else. When everything goes to shit, we really look after each other.

Queensland will endure, because Queensland always does. This site is open for donations if anybody would like to help. I think when all this is over I'm going to go out and buy my cousin's kids a shitload of toys.
