A dedication to the Volunteers in Queensland - January 2011

They never knew a smile was worth so much ‘till they saw yours
And when you reached out to them, they took hold
And with you they felt safe once again
One of many volunteer stories untold
I’ve seen the sun give birth to many mornings
But not like the miracle of today
As thousands of you braved the muck and stink
Shovels, gum boots, insect repellent spray
Heads down with ears thrown back
Mopping waters and tears that spill
No “yes we might” or “Yes we can”
But “Yes we bloody will! ”
