Australia Day

This is a day when 'white' Australia celebrate the arrival of Europeans to this continent.  Our first nation people call it "Invasion Day".  To most people it is just a public holiday where they can be together with family and friends.  This year I personally have moved my position on this day.  I would like to see it moved to another date, one we could all feel happy with.  Deliberately making many of our fellow country persons feel bad by reminding them of all that separates us can't be good.  Choosing another day where we can all celebrate our nation would be better and make the words of our national anthem,

"for we are one and free"

a reality.

I hope that day comes, sooner rather than later.

Yes, so do I.
