I’ve had a lot of people thanking and congratulating me on what we’ve been able to do for Ranjini so far, it means a lot, but I feel compelled to say something this morning.
Letters For Ranjini is not me.
Letters For Ranjini is the more than 200 people who have sent in letters. It’s the countless people who have shared the story on Facebook or Twitter or just told their friends and family. It’s the people who have sent in photos, cards, artworks and songs. It’s the journalists who were still at midnight last night working to get Ranjini’s story in the papers and on televisions. It’s everyone who supported Born Free. It’s the lawyers and advocates and organisations like the ASRC, ChilOut and Welcome To Australia who have spent years making sure that if the Government tries to win votes through divisiveness and fear, we will give them hell every step of the way.
Most of all, it’s Ranjini and her incredible family who have shown so much strength and courage throughout this whole ordeal and inspire all of us to keep fighting.
Me, I just copy and paste the amazing things you all send in – and it’s bought me so much joy to do it.
Letters For Ranjini is YOURS – Let’s do something incredible.
