In London we have Londoners. In New York you have New Yorkers. The people from Britain are the British. People from Thailand are Thais. People from America are Americans. And so on.
So what then of people from Sydney – are they Sydney’onians ? Or Sydney’ians ? Or Sydney’ers ? Or Syndey’ists ? Or Sydney’ans ? Or Sydwegians ? Or just Syds ?
Hopefully someone’ll clear that up for me, it’s been keeping me awake at nights 😀
One of my Australian friends has sent over more photos from Sydney. People in Sydney still remain in mourning after the recent terror attack. There’s also a strong feeling of solidarity, and, obviously, standing strong together in the face of cowards. Which should remind all of us that we’re a lot stronger as communities than as individuals.
The whos, whats and whys I’m not overly concerned with here, so discussion on those issues probably won’t be entered into. Moreover, have some respect for the people who lost their lives that day, and their families and friends, if you wish to comment here.
My friend says this :
That many flowers are being added that there are now three areas covered in flowers and pavement signs. Thousands per hour are turning up with more flowers. I haven’t seen so many in years.
Sydney has found out from London, Boston and Holland that the flowers from memorials (Diana, MH17, Boston marathon) to compost all dead flowers and use the compost on a proposed memorial park. Nice idea.
He sent me these photos :
