Taken at the Anzac Day march in Perth.
It was so good to watch the march. In the weeks leading up to Anzac Day I was feeling very ho-hum about it and seeing the phrase “Lest we forget” around the place almost made me scoff, because we do forget, 364 days of the year we tend to forget. However, seeing people marching in memory of the armed forces and in memory of their loved ones, and seeing some older people that served in wars, and probably even some young people who’ve served in Afghanistan, reminded me of my family members who served and of the sacrifice that was given by so many that we might have the lives we now have.
I’ve been thinking a lot about war since then actually… I have nothing enlightened to say on the topic, but the thoughts are brewing.
