I’ve been intending to work for some time with a photo I took of a beautiful little nature park I visited quite often when I lived in
Bowraville, on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, Australia.
I was able to get a good photo of the park with the sun shining in, like a light-bringer, because the darkness behind this lovely little park is that three Aboriginal children were murdered in the village twenty years ago and no-one has been brought to justice for these crimes.
The Aboriginal children and Elders visited me in a dream one night while I was living at Bowraville, I have no idea why but I do know they still seek justice, and their memory is imprinted in my heart.
Their spirits are unquiet, and their families are still trying to get some action from the European court system. It’s been a long haul but the families have never lost their love for their children and the search for justice continues.
So this photo is a tribute to the memories of the three children, Evelyn Greenup, Colleen Walker and Clinton Speedy-Duroux, and to the love of their families in whose memories they remain.
It is a hope that one day justice will prevail and their murderer sent to prison for his crimes (yes, his, the whole community knows who the murderer is).
This photo is composed of the photo of the nature park, created by an Aboriginal Elder of the area, superimposed with a photo of a Lithium Quartz in my crystal collection – lithium being an element of peace.
Here are the two original photos I used to produce the composite:
