Today the nation stops to commemorate the 97th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli by the ANZAC (Australian & New Zealand Army Corp) and to remember the sacrifices made by Australians in every military action since.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest we forget
The fourth stanza of the poem For the fallen
By Laurence Binyon (1869–1943)
It is a day for reflection on the sacrifices WE as a nation have made to defend this nation and the life WE live, sometimes you have to stand up for your values and beliefs.
