In today’s busy world it’s so easy to get caught up in the events of the day that we tend to forget the lessons we should have learned from the yesterdays of our life.
Let’s take time out occasionally to stop and think about where we’ve been and what, or who, has influenced our life.
200 years doesn’t give the white occupation of Australia a lengthy history, but encased in our growth as a Nation is the legend of ‘Anzac’.
It’s our responsibility to ensure those who come after us remember the story of our men and women who served in the wars and confrontations of the past.
The Bible tells us that ‘greater love hath no one, than those who lay down their lives for their friends’.
Anzac Day is a good day to stop and look back at those who loved us enough to fight and die for us.
It’s also a good day to tell the kids the story of Australians at war in the past and why we enjoy the freedom we have in this country today.
Maybe we’d better make sure we know the answers ourselves first.
