Justice, Freedom and Peace. Lest We Forget.


 

ANZAC Day grows in significance for me as each year passes. Each day between one April 25 and the next seems to bring more news of conflicts overseas which see more of our serving men and women called into tours of duty. The issues more complex, the line between right and wrong increasingly blurred, the definition of peace more and more subjective. As I move from childhood, then adulthood and now into parenthood - the human cost of war is brought into even sharper focus.

 


I don't think it's possible to live in this country and not cherish the ANZAC spirit. Justice, freedom and peace are the qualities that ANZACs past and present fight for. For all of us. It's not just a matter of not forgetting today but also remembering the sacrifices made on our behalf every other day of the year and acting towards each other accordingly.

    Lovely post. I agree, it is a lovely day when we remember all that is wonderful about this country and thank those who gave everything to make it this way. I only wish we could fine a way to end all wars.
