Re­silience in the face of hard­ship

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Opinion -

It’s hard to be­lieve an­other 12 months have passed us by and Christ­mas is again upon us.

As the fes­tive sea­son draws close, I am sure we’re all ready for a change of pace.

For most of us, Christ­mas is a joy­ous oc­ca­sion when we fi­nally get some down­time to spend with loved ones.

For oth­ers across the Pil­bara it has been a tough year.

We con­tinue to see job losses or re­lo­ca­tions, busi­ness clo­sures and peo­ple faced with fore­clo­sure and los­ing their homes. Our com­mu­nity is re­silient. We’ve been many through ups and downs over the years but it’s im­por­tant for all of us to reach out to those who are do­ing it tough at the mo­ment.

Let’s hope 2017 brings fresh change and op­por­tu­nity for all.

I’d like to ac­knowl­edge once again the con­tin­ued hard work of the po­lice, doc­tors, nurses and vol­un­teers around town who will be work­ing right through the fes­tive sea­son. Thank you for all
