What Does ANZAC day mean to you.....

At 11am today I sat..with tears running down my cheeks….remembering…and I have many family members to remember………..from the first and second World war……Jewish family on my birth mothers side……..French Family on my Fathers side….Bengali on my Stepmothers side…….many I never even got the chance to know……….so many…. but just a drop in the ocean compared to the Many that were lost…….

Today in Australia we remember the Australian who died……….are our hearts not big enough to remember and think of ALL who died……can we not also remember everyone who waited in vain for a Husband……Father…Son …. Daughter …..to come home………..who waited for that knock on a door…only to find a piece of paper giving the news that no one deserves to get……………their loved one lost in action….missing…….even today…so many years after ANZAC day these messages are still being delivered……………..will we never learn……..
