After the fire

Sequin | 10:09 UK time, Monday, 23 March 2009

In a minute I'm going to speak to the parish priest of Marysville in Victoria, Australia a town that was almost completely destroyed by the devastating bushfires there in February.

It just set us talking here in the office about how we'd feel about returning to live in an area where so many people died or had their homes and possessions destroyed. Would you feel the same about living in that area again if some of your neighbours had been killed or indeed if you'd lost a family member? Or would you want to try to rebuild your life and try to recreate what had gone before?

If all that's a bit philosophical at this time in the morning, maybe you could just send me a joke instead. My supply for the newsletter is running low and I've lost track of which ones Eddie has already used!
