Bruce and Denise Morcombe have been nominated as Queensland's Australian of the Year.
Truly, we should never have found out who Bruce and Denise Morecombe were, or about their family, and of their strength. Noone should go through what they've been through - and what they're going through will continue for the rest of their lives.
I wish them the best, and hope they realise that their efforts to protect children are appreciated by other Australians.
The WTF is the nomination for hero. Doug Hislop has been hailed a hero for preventing the floodborne River Walk section from smashing into the Gateway Bridge. Thing is that even Doug has said that the Gateway Bridge was built to survive an impact much bigger than the walkway smashing into the pylons. I would imagine that much more debris has smashed into the bridge from the flood and that the river walkway was just what we could see.
