The blood of this nation was poured out all over foreign conflicts that did not concern us. The youth and vigour of the country has never recovered. Think of the lives of all of these men; who otherwise might have gone on to be great heroes of our nation in other conquests of the bush.

Every year it seems the celebration for ANZAC day becomes more and more pomp and show, yet every year the nation strays further and further from the founding articles of this country for which the soldiers fought and died. Is it really honouring the fallen holding these celebrations?
