ANZAC Day – Gallipoli

You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace, after having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

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.
