Shed a few tears this morning at the news. I guess I was holding on to hope that some of these precious souls were still alive. I think this has impacted me most over the last two and half weeks because one of the Australian couples on the plane was sort of a mirror image of Steve and me. The wife was my age exactly (53), the children had all left home, and they wanted to explore the world.
So very tragic.
As for my accent, Lillian, it is very Australian, which means quite lazy.
And Jo got Cori's lineage right. She has a wonderful accent. Some people said we sounded the same, but Cori and I just look at each other and laugh (while shaking our heads). Cori has a very proper accent. Mine is just lazy.
I just remembered a handful of audio messages I shared on my old website (untouched for years). So if you would like to hear my accent, you can hear it here:http://www.breathfreshair.org/AudioMessage.html
You can either play it on Windows Media or click the download link (and it will play direct).
