This badge was shown to me when I was 8.
A girl was visiting our unit from England.
I remember not wanting to leave as she was so much fun even tho her uniform was brown.
I returned to my Brownie unit to start my leadership journey, there I found the badge.
Remembering the friendship I formed with the girl, my old brownie leader gave it to me.
This badge sits on my leaders tab, so I never forget the girl from England.
Today I took it off, to the 1st Tarleton brownie leaders; stand strong it's not your fault.
I cannot fathom the amount of pain you are going through.
To the brownies; I have no words. You're probably too young to understand what has happened.
I hope you keep going to brownies, have fun and advocate to stop the violence.
To the parents, I can only imagine your pain.
As a lover of music, it should never bring pain or sadness.
As a girl guide this makes me sad, this is the reality faced by girls every day.
I wear this badge today for my little sister Saffie
For my sisters of the 1st Tarleton
For all my sisters in guiding facing violence.
