My family risked their lives for me
I had gone to Darwin for my mothers wedding on the 25th of December 1974 (christmas eve) we were celerbrating the marriage we invited friends and family.The weather started to change strong winds and rain came my mum looked out the window there was a cyclone about to hit Darwin. Mum thought it was cyclone Tracy but then the cyclone became closer, my aunt looked out she has been in Darwin 30yrs now and she knew that wasn't cyclone Larry. She told my mum that it was.... Cyclone Tracy. Mum quikly evacuated every one to a safe place but i went the other way to the closest. Tracy hit our house i was so scared i hve never been in a cyclone before especially one this dangerous. I closed my eyes so tightly i opened my eye's my parents's and every one were on the floor i thought they had fanted but my fate was wrong my aunt was in the closet with me she walked up behind me a those words slipped out of her lips 'they're gone'.
i have never returned to Darwin and never will not ever since the insadent.
i live with my aunty now in Melbourne.
