ANZAC Day – Lest we Forget

25 Apr

It’s April 25th here, which in this part of the world is ANZAC (Australia New Zealand Army Corps) Day – a day in which we remember the sacrifices made by the brave, and often scared, men and women that went from our shores to fight for a cause they believe in, on behalf of the world. Many of those people didn’t come back, and ANZAC Day – the anniversary of a disastrous attack at Gallipoli on April 25, 1915 – is the day we have set aside to remember and reflect.

May they rest in peace.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

– Excerpt from “For the Fallen”, Laurence Binyon
