Children Like Me

A letter for former Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, sent to him two weeks before he was removed as LNP Leader.

Dear Mr Abbott,

I was reading the National Anthem, Advance Australia Fair.

It says, "For those who come across the seas we have boundless plains to share".

I have heard that you have sent boats away from Australia and people have drowned and died. Some of them were children like me.

I think you should stop sending boats away and let them come to Australia.

I feel sad about this.

In my school we have 48 different nationalities.

Yours sincerely,

Lela, Year 2.
