THE LETTER OF THE WEEK
CHANGE is inevitable, but it’s how you navigate it that matters.
In this ever-changing world we urge everyone who cares about our society – whether you live in Sydney or Swan Hill – to remember we all deserve respect and dignity.
Our country’s success is built on this very idea of a ‘fair go’ for all, a notion underpinned by the very basic principle of humanity. Humanity is universal in nature and urges that all people – no matter their gender, race or religion – to be treated with respect, and given the chance to live life in dignity. In this world we have choices to make: a fair go for all, or just for some; unity or separation. We all have the chance to nurture and promote the kindness, compassion and goodness that are essential for human dignity. At Red Cross Australia, we work for unity, humanity and the inherent dignity of every person. We encourage all Australians and our community, political and business leaders, to do the same. Judy Slatyer, CEO, Australian Red Cross
