Smokey a proud name of Sydney. Sydney
Smokey a proud name of Sydney.
Smokey is a name to grow into and be proud of. Not only are there eight generations of the family behind him, but his name will always remind him of his connection to the land. His mother says it beautifully. The country doesn't belong to us, and it's time every Australian starts to remember that. We are here for a finite length of time. While we all want to leave our children something, it is time to think beyond bricks and mortar and money.
Then we hear about the feeling of a blue gum plantation in Victoria where tall trees inhabited by koalas were logged, and the remains bulldozed, resulting in horrible injuries and deaths of countless koalas. There are landowners and plantation owners who make decisions, managers who organize the work, and people who carry out the instructions, all of whom are culpable and should be charged with heinous animal cruelty.

I think it's ridiculous that I even have to tackle this. Anyway, I did win a beauty contest during my final year in high school. 5 judges voted that. Not by my colleagues.
