ANZAC DAY MEMORIAL SERVICE
This morning we headed off to our local Dawn Service. It was an opportunity for us to express our gratitude, remembrance & show pride in our nation. To see the War Veterans there each with their own story to tell some stories etched on their faces as the Last Post was played on the bugle & a minutes silence observed. Many of them surrounded by their families all who seem to be full of pride.
This was a great experience for us as a family. The kids loved to see & hear the Pipe Bands playing and all the school children marching, many wearing their family medals.
We loved the inscription written in the back of Photographs in the Mud. It's found on the Kokoda track -
They are not dead not even broken;
Only the dust has gone back home to earth;
For they; the essential they; shall have rebirth
Whenever a word of them is spoken
Well we have spoken of them & remember them & will continue to do. Thank-you to all of you who served & are serving.
