Friday Video from SmartPak: A Year On, Megan Jones Remembers the Fire

It’s almost impossible to believe that it’s been a year since the wildfires that raged through Australia were the biggest crisis unfolding on our radars – but time means nothing anymore, and so we really are that far removed from this tragic catastrophe.

Olympic eventer Megan Jones was one of countless people whose lives were affected by the fires, and in this video from FEITV, she looks back at her experience of escaping the blaze with her horses and family. It’s tough watching, certainly, and the realisation of just how much devastation we’ve seen over the last year isn’t an easy pill to swallow – but it’s a poignant bit of perspective in these funny old times.
