As the voice for Northern Tasmania, The Examiner is here to help find the truth, right wrongs, change and campaign for new laws, fight for jobs, promote local businesses, protect and improve our environment and uncover injustices.
We're also here to share your stories. Those personal moments in time that have challenged who you are as a person.
The past week we've had some brave members of our community share their truths in a hope it inspires it others.
Ellena Bisset shared her heartbreaking story of daughter Blair born perfect, but still. It was a story that is rarely told, but one that affects far too many parents in Australia.
Tasmania's Governor Kate Warner shared her courage and determination in overcoming cancer and 30-year-old Alicia Roskelly's continuing battle will foster emotions of admiration and strength.
A tragic event that involved bravery, guilt, death, but also a strong message of hope was heard for the first time in 54 years.
We know many readers would have been in awe of the journey and challenges these four individuals have and continue to face.
Every word spoken to us is one that we respect and learn from ourselves. We do not taking these heartfelt memories for granted, but rather take away thoughts of hope and living with purpose.
Until next week,
