Millions of people around the world are aware of the floods that has happen in our wonderful country. Qld, my home state, is just starting the very long process of cleaning up and repairing homes on businesses, and there are still so many people who are able to return home, and many never will.
The one that has really stuck in my thoughts and heart, was the 13 year old boy named Jordon Rice who asked rescuers to save his 10 year old brother( Blake) first. When rescuers came for the young teen and his mother, Donna who were stranded on the roof of their car, surrounded by water, the ropes snapped due the strength of rushing water, were swept away never to hold their family again. I don't know these people, but our hearts go out to their family and friends. I hope they don't mind me mentioning their story but I wanted to pay homage to one young man and his mother who where so selfless that lost their lives through bravery and the love of a family member.
