Hero

Most of the stuff written on this blog is negative crap, because it is about politicians.


I would like to write a positive memento about a Hero, Austin Bernard Hemmings, who was murdered yesterday while defending the safety of a woman that he didn't know because she needed his help.

It was a selfless act from a devoted family man who left for work on the Devonport ferry Thursday morning and never came home to his wife and three teenage children.

A tragedy for sure, for all those that knew and loved him but in his last act on this planet a positive reinforcement of how truly good most New Zealanders are.

His wife, children, family and friends will be missing this truly lovely man.

Lets hope his death is an impetus for positive change instead of more of the same.
