This feeling arises from a place of love, not just for me, but for most people. When there is a danger, we want loved ones close by, so we are assured of their safety. It is these family ties that gives us the strong foundation, from which we grow, with our feet firmly planted in the ground. Its my family which gives me my core strength. And it is love alone, which has the power to make us strong. I wish all Queenslanders safety and security with their loved ones, while we wait out this cyclone.
