Why? National Day of Remembrance
When: Wednesday 25th of April 2012
Your Comment
Most of all, remembering those who fought and lived and those who fought and died is important to humanity and our way of living in Australia today. Many young Australians do not know or understand the significance of ANZAC Day. Getting them to participate and show respect by an appearance to the Dawn Service or Parade is an honour to the ones who should not be forgotten. They gave a lot of their life at all hours of the day and night. If we are well enough and cannot pull ourselves out of bed or out of the house we should feel ashamed. There should be something we can all do to commemorate this day of remembrance.
Soldiers today are still fighting wars that don't always help their peace of mind in the long run. To achieve peace we require consideration on many levels. We need to respect and appreciate the sacrifice of others and our own commitment to life. Love, show kindness and accept people for each and every difference.
Many ANZACS and people involved in other wars have paved the way to make our life better. Lest we forget; what can we do for someone else?
Kind Regards,
