Pulling to­gether gets re­sults

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North - Townsville Bul­letin

HOW pleas­ing it was to read ‘‘ Death stalks pair on re­mote bush road’’ ( TB March 1) with 2011 hav­ing be­gun in such a dis­as­trous man­ner with loss of life due to floods, cy­clones, bush­fires and earth­quakes it is in­deed re­fresh­ing to read a good news story.

Full credit to Del­phina Al­bert and her part­ner Dar­ren Gre­gory for un­der­tak­ing the trek to find help for Dun­can Mick, and for Dun­can’s son Hil­ton for keep­ing his fa­ther alive through his knowl­edge of ‘‘ bush tucker’’ and ‘‘ bush medicine’’ – he did a great job, they all did a great job.

The story tells us that in the face of ad­ver­sity if we stick to­gether and act like a team we can over­come, we can win. SHAUN NEW­MAN,
