WRONG SIDE OF THE WORLD

Australian Country music star Beccy Cole wrote POSTER GIRL (wrong side of the world) as a response to a letter she received from a fan after she spent 2wks visiting Australian Soldiers overseas.

The fan wrote that he would be taking her poster off his wall and would not be listening to her music anymore.

Beccy was quoted as saying "That when I met the troops I become patriotic and really proud. I met young, enthusiastic Australians that just want to keep terrorism from reaching our home shores so that Australians can keep the life of peace & freedom"

She also says she did not know what her stance was until she went over there. People are quick to judge these situations without knowing fully what it's all about. Prior to that she said she would have said she was staunchly anti -war -but then again aren't we all

Please take the time to listen & have a great day

Have been thinking of you lately Caroline. Hope you are okay and your soldier boy is safe.

This is a lovely song by Beccy.

Thank you for this song. I had heard it before but had never really listened to the lyrics or the story behind it. It's beautiful.

Another soldier has been killed in Afghanistan - as a mother, let alone a mother of a soldier, I cannot imagine how you are feeling.

God Bless and keep safe all soldiers and defence force personnel serving to keep us safe!

Thinking of you,

Joolz

Yes it has been a terrible week, thinking of you and your family.
