One of the things I am deeply proud of is being an Australian.
I have lived 46 of my 60 years in this great land
and there is not a day when I do not wake up
and feel free.
What ever we make of the ANZAC.....I would prefer to call it STORY.....rather than myth or legend
there are many such "stories" of heroism, mateship, bloody-mindedness, loyalty,
This seems to me deeply is probably deeply Muslim too...and certainly indigenous!
I am in you and you are in me.
I pray God's blessing on the living
and on the departed
on those who struggle
and those whose struggle goes unnoticed.
I am deeply, deeply proud to be an Australian.
