Today is Anzac Day, the Australian and New Zealand version of Memorial Day.
This year, some of the regional governments seem to feel that commemorations are best kept small and private, instead of allowing people to gather as is proper. Not everyone agrees with this.
Monday is Anzac Day observed. Thank you to all Australians and New Zealanders who served and who are still serving.
When I was in Australia, my parents made a special point to take Sib and I to the war memorial in Sidney. You look down on this statue from above. It is very thought provoking. We also went to the Australian Military History museum in Canberra. I had no idea all the conflicts Australia had contributed troops to – a lot.
Lest we forget, lest we forget.
