Messages of Hope arrive for farmers

17th Dec 2019

The following messages are just some of those that
arrived for the Guyra Branch of the CWA from the students at Birmingham Primary School, Mt Evelyn Victoria.

To the brave, resilient person that’s reading this, please stay strong. I know that this must be an extremely difficult time for you, but I KNOW that you can do this! You are amazing for not breaking down even in the worst of times, for being your STRONG self. Your AWESOME self. You’re a strong survivor and you’ll keep on surviving.
From Imogen Grade 4

My Christmas wish for you is that when you wake up one morning you will hear the pitter patter of rain. I hope that the rain will help all the firefighters get all of the fires under control. Even when times get tough just remember to stay positive and keep hoping.
Birmingham Primary School

My thoughts, hopes, feelings go out to you. I feel so small and useless here while you do it tough. No problem seems so big when I think of you up there. I hope that your Christmas brings rain and that things get better for you. Remember it is always darkest before the dawn. I hope that these hard times go away. I’m also sorry for not been (sic) able to do more. When times get hard I will think of you and remember I will get through a will you.

‘Thank you’ is the least I can say to you to show my appreciation for everything you have done for Australia.
Jonti Ellis

Hope will always be there for you. Hope will always look after you. Hope will always be there when you need. Hope will always be your knight in shining armour. Hope will be your shining stars when it’s the darkest of nights.
From Sophie & Sierra

The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about. To you guys that strengthened our country, the struggle you’re in today is developing a strength you need for tomorrow.

Dear farmers and firefighters, I am terribly sorry about all these fires and drought happening out in NSW, I understand how hard it must be going through this and I feel very bad that you are having to deal with it all, I know some people must be devastated and please do tell them I care about them and their safety. I wish you all the best and I hope everything will come together eventually, (and even if it doesn’t soon I promise you it will one day because you have amazing firefighters out there going and fighting the fires and helping all the farmers with drought.) I wish you all a lovely Christmas and be safe.
