Morcombes share message

BRUCE and Denise Morcombe's message is a simple one: recognise, react and report.

The parents of murdered school boy Daniel Morcombe yesterday addressed Year 8 students at Tannum State High School as part of their Recognise, React and Report tour.

Students listened attentively to the brave parents, who are now dedicated to child safety through the work of the Daniel Morcombe Foundation.

The Morcombes spoke to students about a variety of personal safety issues.

"Maybe I can't change what happened yesterday but I can make change for the good tomorrow," Mr Morcombe said.

"That's why eight years on from Daniel, we're doing these school tours."
