What’s the purpose of National Sorry Day?
In addition to acknowledging the trauma and loss that continues to affect Indigenous communities, families and individuals, National Sorry Day also provides a chance to focus on healing and pursue reconciliation in Australian society.
Because of what’s happened in Texas and this day always brings out the racist “I didn’t do anything to hurt them” Which honestly, most of the time, they have been completely racist to Indigenous Australians. They may have never “harmed” Indigenous people, but they haven’t been kind either.
All I can think about today is the situation in Afghanistan. It’s like even though none of us did this, I can’t help but say that I am sorry. This is the only place I’m on today, there is no way I am going to go on the likes of Facebook or Twitter. It would be only a mess.
The world just feels like such a horrible place right now. But you know, we got each other, and that makes us some of the lucky few ❤
It was a bit of a shocked moment. I guess in another way though, they thought this might happen. The most dangerous time for a abused person, is when they leave the abusive relationship.
I just wanted to start this post with saying “Sorry Day” is not about how white people feel about the name of the day, and Sorry Day isn’t saying that white people NOW have done anything to harm the Indigenous people of Australia. The irony of seeing the amount of white people saying “I don’t like the name Sorry Day we should change it to this or this”.
How Did Sorry Day Come About? National Sorry Day came about as a product of the “Bringing Them Home” report in 1997 as a means to honour Australia’s First Peoples and to remember the Stolen Generation.
The report also recommended that the Prime Minister (John Howard) make a public apology to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Stolen Generations. Howard decided against it. It wasn’t until 13 February 2008 that Prime Minister Kevin Rudd issued a full apology.
What is Australia’s Sorry Day (26 May)? It is a time to remember the past policies of forced child removal, and reflect on the sad and painful stories of the Stolen Generations. It is a time to recognise the resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the power of saying Sorry.
What is not Australia’s Sorry Day? A chance for white people to complain about how they don’t like the name of the Day.
Interesting Fact about Former PM Kevin Rudd. He is the Former PM currently taking on the Murdoch Media in Australia and it’s influence. Kevin Rudd just had the biggest online petition signed by the Australian People to get a commission to look into Murdoch Media. Kevin Rudd petition seeking royal commission into Murdoch media nears 500,000 signatures – The Guardian: Amanda Mead – 3rd Nov 2020.
Honestly, the person I feel the most sorry for at the moment is Robert Muller.
He did his job and he has already, basically told us that they did not find Trump innocent. I do not know how many more times we need him to say it. Just because Trump keeps lying about what Muller said, doesn’t mean Muller needs to keep repeating it.
It must be the most frustrating position to be Muller right now. He keeps repeating what they found and that is Trump is not innocent. But people wont listen. Democrats want him to repeat word for word the report, but to what end? Republicans clearly do not care, he could literally say it word-for-word and he could literally say “Trump did it”. Will they listen, no.
They have just come off a whole spill of saying what Trump had said wasn’t racist. When it was the biggest racist line in the history of racism. They literally do not care about the truth. Too be completely honest with you all, I don’t think trump supporters would understand half, at least, the big words in the report.

I am so ashamed to be an Australian right now…I couldn’t even put this in a “Category…It’s not an interesting topic, it’s depressing
Where Serena is depicted in a Mammy cartoon form, jumping up and down…But Kyrgios is depicted as a “sulky” teenager…So apparently that’s owning people who call the cartoon racist and sexist…Except that the picture completely prove it IS sexist
(and #Osaka…She’s not white)…
Where people are offended by Burqas, but have no outrage over the KKK outfit…This is not MY Australia…I’ve just found out recently that a lot of people consider Australia to be racist…Are we? I am in literal tears over the support of this cartoon…It’s a disgrace! Kyrgios is definitely not known because he’s “sulky”

I have kept meaning to post this one! There is nothing more that makes me angry than someone who will try and hurt you by shaming you, publicly, and then not have the backbone to apologise, even privately! I honestly and really don’t care if you tell every other single soul on this planet “I shouldn’t have done that” You HAVE to tell ME! (Also I am aware of my bad spelling, but I was trying to fit it all in).
May the 26th is a poignant here in Australia it is “National Sorry Day”. This day is significant because it symbolises the Day where the Australian Parliament publicly apologised to the Indigenous people of Australia (the Aboriginal people).
It’s a time to reflect on what the Settlers did to the Indigenous people of this land, not only what we did to their land when we came over to “settle” Also the “certain situations” that have happened over the years. (I’m at Work right now, but on Friday I should be able to write more about this). National Sorry Day is also a part of Australia’s Reconciliation Week.
Three Guesses what this Blog post is about!
I got the text…The text that you don’t see coming…You’ve moved on so far it doesn’t enter your brain that when you feel your phone vibrate there is no warning sound…No loud alarm…No warning before you swipe to say “DO NOT OPEN UP THIS PHONE UNTIL YOU ARE READY!”
So I am going to make him suffer…”All this I am so sorry stuff” So he should be! He can wait until tomorrow!
