The only people who do not yet understand this burden are the children. Their world is still one of naive joy; singing, dancing, running, playing football, they are no different to kids anywhere around the world. The difference is what they are about to face - soon they will all face the temptation of alcohol, the threat of violence,
and a welfare system that will rob them of any sense of purpose. The hope is they will be strong enough to overcome this, and find a place in a world which seems determined to forget them. Big thanks to the Ord Valley Aboriginal Health Service, who graciously accommodated us whilst in Keep River.
