Ode to the dead

February 9, 2009 — 3 Comments

As the sun sets over Victoria
let us remember those who have fallen.
Those who lived an Australian dream
The retired, first home owners and those in between.
Let us forever remember that even in the digital age
we were unable to save them.
and lets us respect them by learning from the disaster.
We cannot raise the dead
but we can learn from their deaths.
let us learn in years to come
better ways of saving the living.
At this dark time we remember the fallen
like those who fell before them
and know that together we can make this country better.
May generations hence remember this time
and those that have died
if only as a beacon as to why we should always strive to advance civilization
and the safety it should, and always must provide.
