I LOVE my new country... I do not miss the states at all, except for a few friends.
I feel VERY blessed to be allowed to live here with my dear wife. I wish I could have been here ages ago.
What a wonderful life, and absolutely lovely country. Queensland has stolen my heart forever.
I get very emotional about it all, like I escaped a hell hole, and arrived at heaven.
My wife and I some day hope to be able to see most of Australia, she has been a Brisbane girl her whole life.
She hasn't seen much of her own country either. We hope to explore it all someday. Lord willing, and our health holds out..
I am honoured and humbled to be living here, and look forward to citizenship down the road.
So many here in Oz just don't know what they have; it is all they have ever known. I have met refugees from other places. Survivors of wars in far
off lands who now live here; and everyone of them is very grateful and love it here in Oz.
NONE of them have any desire to make Oz like where they came from either! And the LAST thing on Earth I EVER want to see is OZ become like America!!!!
To me this Oz is a paradise, a slice of heaven. Wish I could live 500 years to just begin to see all of its treasures.
Australians are so very lucky to have such a place to live.. I hope and pray they/we can keep it that way, and preserve it from any coming wars, or
destroying its natural treasures. The whole country needs to be declared a world treasure, a place to be protected from the worlds insanity, HANDS OFF
