To quote Daniel Bowen,
"I think one of the reasons I’m so pleased the apology is that it’s so rare for politicians to admit that they (individually or collectively) were wrong. That alone makes it a historic day."Alas and alack, I too also feel that the Opposition Leader Brenden Nelson, is an absolute dick. Thank fuck they got elected out of office, otherwise this would never have happened. I spit on ex-PM John Howard for not even bothering to attend.
One Aboriginal chap at Meals on Wheels today went down to Canberra for the day yesterday. He was deeply moved, as his own family were directly affected by this whole situation, all those years ago.
Walking downtown yesterday, someone used Arthur Staces' concept of writing "Eternity" in chalk on the footpath, by writing "Sorry" at various intersections downtown. Touche.
Things like these events affect generations for generations.
The Stolen Generations were the Australian Holocaust. I'm quite serious.
