Sorry


Today Australia finally said sorry for the misery that has been visited upon the original owners of our land.

Things are looking up Down Under.

Yes, but you're not allowed to go back. Just so you'll know.
I was very glad to hear about the apology, so long in coming.

Well I certainly can't go back until you get here or Katherine, Ronell, Casey x 2, Lin, Shirley.... etc.

Of course I don't want to miss the renaissance that always comes with a new Labor government in Australia. History tells me that it can all change overnight.

It's surreal. Quite hard to beleive that he's actually doing the things he said he would do. Not saying they are 'non-core'. It was an amazing day. There was a lettter in the SMH a couple of days ago from a woman who said that if she was of child-bearing age she'd have to call her baby Kevin. Tongue in cheek, sure, but the sentiment is there.

The groundswell was (is ) palpable.

How did I miss this? Thanks for the alert Robyn.
