ANZAC Day Debate

Today being ANZAC Day, the morning is dedicated to ANZAC posts.  The only time of the year we interrupt our daily schedule.  You can help, by showing respect and leaving the frivolous until after noon.

Had your brothers, fathers, uncles and grandfathers not stood up to be counted, supported by your sisters, mothers, aunts and grandmothers; had some of them not made the ultimate sacrifice, my family history would have turned out quite differently.  I suspect some of yours would too.
