In my large family I have a lot of nephews and nieces. Some are into their forties and the youngest is 8 years old.
I love spending time with Abbey and with her sister. They’re great fun to be around. We play together and explore the world from an 8 year old’s perspective. We have lots of room for moose and treat them nicely. They are always appearing and quickly disappearing.
She’s home sick today, and after coming to Michael and my wedding in New Zealand earlier in the year, she’s been wondering why we can’t get married in Australia. I’m reliably informed that she has some questions for me and that she is learning how changes are made.
How awesome is it that a child can understand the inequality in our society and also work out how change can be started. From her heart comes her plea and her question to the Prime Minister of Australia.
My niece is awesome! Thanks Abbey.
Here’s her letter to the PM.
