An awesome post

Belongum posted fantastic piece of writing today which really struck a cord with me. There's quite a lot I'd like to say about it but I don't even know where to begin. So, instead of me crapping on I'm stealing the tiniest bit and damn well ordering everyone to go read it.
On ANZAC Day remember that these young people are out there at risk, and experiencing things no person in their right mind should have to experience. Remember that it was someone else that sent them away to do the job they're doing and remember too that when they come home - they'll have scars - deep emotional scars - that will need tending.

The older I get the more I understand and the more Anzac Day gets to me. I'm shatteringly inarticulate now so I'll give up on adding anything to this.

As you gat older you mature in various ways. Appreciating ANZAC Day more each year is one of the few commonalities of maturity I think.

Thank you for the link. I have nothing but respect for men and women in uniform. This is why.

Thanks for the wrap NPB... kind words mate. They'll need all the support they can get, and I think on the most part - they'll get it this time.

Cheers ;)
