Western Suburbs Weekly - - Opinion -

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 Perth or Parkes – 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 – 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, 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, Chief ex­ec­u­tive, Aus­tralia Red Cross.
