I've pondered throughout the day today about what I would put as my treasure on this particular Tuesday in July. I've decided that living in Australia is my treasure. I know that we can't guarantee that terrorism will never come to us as it has in other countries, but we are the lucky country. We have elections and we may not always like the result - but we have them without violence. We accept the umpire's decision. Mostly we can travel through this country and not expect violence. Being involved in child protection, I'm fully aware that there is an ugly side to our country, but overall, we are lucky. Lucky to have been born here - lucky that, in most cases, our ancestors made the decision to flee their homes and come to a country that has turned out so well. When my great grandfather boarded the ship in London all those years ago I don't know that he really cared where he went, he just wanted to get away from the horror that was his home country of Ireland. I thank him for getting that boat - and my other ancestors who all made the same decision. I hope that the treasure of a country that we enjoy today will continue to provide my descendants the same promise.
