ANZAC Day

They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.


I find it incredibly sad that our government this year felt the need to warn Australians NOT to go to Gallipoli this year in case of terrorist attack. For me that throws the sacrifices all those men and women and mothers and fathers and sisters and brother made for us in the mud. They fought for our freedom. Don't tell us not to honour them where their blood was spilled because something bad might happen. Something bad did happen. It was called "The War To End All Wars." And funnily enough, something bad is happening today. It's called "The War To End Terrorism."
