This BTN story was about Aboriginal people get together and try to make the world a better place and not judge other people by their skin  colour. This is called “Reconciliation Week”

About 71% of Australians think people are prejudice against Aboriginal people, but only 13% reckon there’s trust between indigenous and non indigenous Australians. It shouldn’t matter what skin colour you are or what religion or what background you are , you should always respect and care for others.Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islander people have been here way longer then all of us and they still haven’t been treated the same as other Aussies. Its’s sad to say they weren’t aloud to go to the sames schools, shops and hospitals as non-aboriginals and they weren’t even counted in the Australian population. It shouldn’t come down to that Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islander people don’t get the same rights and opportunities as the non-aboriginal people do. Why do people judge people for who they truly are?

In this BTN story, they talked about the Nepal earthquake and how devastating it was. The Earthquake was 7.9 magnitude rating. This earthquake left behind broken hearts, broken family’s as thousands of people passed away in the braking of their home and buildings and an avalanche from Mt Everest. This earthquake left many sick, homeless and needing medical.

 

I you go far underneath the surface of the earth you will find a big, red, hot molten rock. A molten rock is a very hard version of lava. Some places get many earthquakes because on top of the two tectonic plates that could possibly collide at any time. In 2012 Australia had a little earthquake which didn’t make that much damage, but China gets really bad earthquakes because they are on top of two tectonic plates and that can cause them millions of dollars to repair.
