Anzac day Blogging dawn service

Watching the sun rise through my window and thinking of all of those men and women who have fought and died for this country.

Lest we forget Comrades

    I’ve just arrived hoome fromthe dawn service.
    It’s warm and overcast, and in town it’s foggy.
    I thought I could get a nice photo of sunrise on Anzac Day, but it was not to be.
    I should carry a notebook with me, to write down my thoughts.
    The homily was wonderful. The Reverened spoke of love, and what it is, and how a special love of comrades and country is what has given us our freedoms, the freedoms we should not easily give away.
    I’m going to see if I can get it, but I suspect it was only with a few notes and “off the cuff”.

    Hi Kae
    I have never been to a Dawn service but I do make a point of taking the time to quietly reflect on the courage and sacrifice of our men and women on this day each year. For me to know that we are all watching the same sunrise with the same thoughts, the same respect makes me proud to be an Aussie by choice.

    God Bless the Anzacs. I have just returned from the march in the city. It was very moving!

    Anzac Day for us, is a wonderful day.
    Been going for eighteen hours.
    Sunrise over three time zones, carrying vets around the country to respective services, and a few ales with their ever dwindling numbers of former mates.

    Wouldn’t miss it !

    God bless em.
