Bad things happen…

Bad things happen…

Who has had enough? Had enough of all the bad news? Climatic challenges are heavy – the cyclones, droughts, bushfires, pathetic role modelling by our so-called senior politicians and community leaders, increasingly poor economic news, crime rates, suicides, domestic...
