Hi there! Today is National Sorry Day, and it’s really darned important. It’s a day for us to acknowledge the dispossession and suffering experienced by our First Nation People. Like Anzac Day, it is a day for us to commemorate those who suffered unconscionable acts of cruelty; to remind us where we have been, and where we must never return.
But it's also a day for us to celebrate the richness, strength and incredible diversity of Australian aboriginality. It is a day to come together and listen to what our FNPs have to say, to heed their advice, and to stand shoulder to shoulder in solidarity. Great things can come of great tragedy. It only takes one moment of compassion and true consideration to change old and outdated perspectives. Together we can build something to be truly proud of.
Many hands make light work, my friends. I hope you’ll wear your black, red and yellow, and stand in solidarity today. #Sorry #SorryDay #keepculturealive #timeforchange #bornsandydiesandy
