The Humanity

In what appear to be two separate incidents in ol' Melbourne town today, two women have been attacked and set on fire. One is rumoured to be a domestic dispute, the other a rape.

I simply cannot fathom what has occurred.

Whatever the circumstances surrounding these events can we a) pause and reflect on the horror of what has been inflicted upon these poor women and b) lament that our public health service is manifestly under resourced in regards to mental health.

I don't want to waste too many words on this. I am close to tears.
