When you're lost in the Wild, and you're scared as a child,
And Death looks you bang in the eye,
And you're sore as a boil, it’s according to Hoyle
To cock your revolver and . . . die.
But the Code of a Man says: "Fight all you can,"
And self-dissolution is barred.
In hunger and woe, oh, it’s easy to blow . . .
It’s the hell-served-for-breakfast that’s hard.
"You're sick of the game!" Well, now that’s a shame.
You're young and you're brave and you're bright.
"You've had a raw deal!" I know — but don't squeal,
Buck up, do your damnedest, and fight.
It’s the plugging away that will win you the day,
So don't be a piker, old pard!
Just draw on your grit, it’s so easy to quit.
It’s the keeping-your chin-up that’s hard.
It’s easy to cry that you're beaten — and die;
It’s easy to crawfish and crawl;
But to fight and to fight when hope’s out of sight —
Why that’s the best game of them all!
And though you come out of each gruelling bout,
All broken and battered and scarred,
Just have one more try — it’s dead easy to die,
It’s the keeping-on-living that’s hard.

I want our Government to offer all manner of financial and personal assistance to farmers, as a matter or urgent priority, to keep their property's going, and to provide help for you to live and survive, and for our nations food security, that should be available to all Australians no matter where we are? in remote places, or the city, as a matter of course and not just in the tough times.
Our Country depends on it! and please don't despair, or sell to foreign ownership. if at all possible.
This situation is not your fault. I am sure it will come good again...It must soon!
I believe help is on it's way. You just need to ask, and let people know you need it, and it will be there for you, I am sure.
I and many others are praying for you, and for it to rain!
Here is a scripture from The Holy Bible and hope it will help;
The poor and needy seek water,
but there is none,
Their tongues fail for thirst,
I, the Lord Will hear them;
I, The Lord Will not forsake them,
I will open rivers in desolate heights,
And fountains in the midst of the Valleys;
I Will make the wilderness a pool of water,
And the dry Land springs of water,
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree; The myrtle and the oil tree;
I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine and the box tree together,
That they may see and know,
And consider and understand together,
That the Hand of the Lord has done this,
And the Holy one of Israel has created it.
Isaiah 41:17 - 20
We all need to pray and believe for this prayer to happen.

Farmers are the backbone of our country and must be given any and all assistance to get through this drought period and get back on track for future production.
It is not viewed as a personal failure when nature is at its nastiest.
We all find it hard to accept assistance at times, and usually when we need it most, but please, please make sure that it is accepted if needed to get through this period and stop people taking drastic actions that affect so many people.
I would like to personally say a huge THANK YOU.
Liz Priester ,
