Words can not begin to appropriatly express the sorrow I feel as I watch the news reports and read the stories about the bush fires that have swept through Victoria in Australia. 

173 dead so far, toll climbing.  Countless homes completly lost.

And some of the fires deliberatly started!!!! What sort of animal could do that?! 

I am furious and so sad. 

I offer my support to all my Aussie brothers and sisters who have been marked by this tragedy.  May you have the strength to get through these difficult times as you put the pieces of your lives back together.

Empathizing with you on the subject, but please -- animals of other species do NOT commit crimes. Only humans, who are also animals (mammals), do this.

:~( tragic

My thoughts are with the families of the dead,i hope those responsible are hung up by the knackers

Fires caused by Mother nature are bad enough with out assistance from sick individuals.<br />
I hope that they can find the people responsible quickly so those affected can get on with their lives.

I hope the individuals responsible for these fires, get caught & brought to justice soon!<br />

Peoples lives are destroyed forever because of this :-(<br />

Now i'm crying~
