In memory of our fallen and our returned from all conflicts and wars around this planet.

Photo taken at the ANZAC March in Monbulk, Victoria Australia for the Monbulk RSL. I have been artist in residence there for a very long time and it has been my honour to photograph many a moving moment during the day.

    when will the human race learn…..? war is not the answer….and saying no to the powers that be, instead of being led blindly into such barbaric actions……there would no need for rembrance etc….mind boggling how we keep repeating history….isn’t it time to wake up?

  • that is why we don’t forget their sacrifice hon – they thought that would end it… I wish there was no need for it either… <3 <3 <3

    you have to ask yourself…….what difference is it making? as long as people are going to wars without questioning and knowing the results……..all it takes is to say no to the powers that be….but it must be a global effort…..for it to work ….and so far there seems to be no changing…..in our attitude….so all the parades and sacrifices mean what???

  • I know but for many it does make a difference. For families who have lost their loved ones to war, be they soldiers or victims, it helps to gather together to remember. For me personally, it is a time to remember my late husband who was RAAF and all the other members of my family who have fought in every war. It’s not glorifying or wanting war, it’s a remembrance that they paid the ultimate price. None of us wants war, none of us wants our children, our husbands, our loved ones to go to what we see as anachronistic futility… This day gives us the opportunity to say goodbye, farewell and above all, thank you…

    I understand you Marg…it is something I feel strongly about, and long for an age when one day there will be a time when there is no more fear of violence…..I am just a dreamer……………

  • Oh I am with you on this totally. I think every person that goes to an ANZAC day commemoration is seeking the same thing – and end to it all. And it’s what all those fallen gave their lives for – the hope that it would end it all… Big big hugs darling girl xoxox
