With less than 2 days to go till Christmas day here in Australia, I thought it was time to wish everyone out there a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.
I’m also moved to say that whilst I’m based in Australia, I want to express my best wishes to those families affected directly or indirectly by the shootings in Newtown just a week ago.
It’s very easy for us in Australia to feel glad that we have effective control over guns, but it doesn’t diminish how shocking it is for us to see these events unfold overseas.
So as a final message from me, please have a safe Christmas break where you can remember how important family is. Acknowledge those you see this year and show them you’re glad they are a part of your life. Don’t let people feel alone.
