Anzac Day 25th of April

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”

We usually have a parade of all Military Vets (I think the US have their … I can’t think what their day is called). Last year however, which I thought was actually even better (to be honest) People came to the end of their drive way with a candle, or some kind of solitary light and stood outside their homes while the minute silence happened. This year most will go ahead, but there will again be limits on the number of people allowed to attend

So you might see a few of these today.

I had great and grandparents serve in WW2 as well as Vietnam. Even though they all, except for my Uncle who served in Vietnam, have passed. I still feel the need to honour them all. And not just for my own family, but for all those people who have served…Animals too!
