    We celebrate our FREEDOM, Blackbird, that's what.

    Don't know how old you are, but there was a time when Australia was fought for, in a war ,that threatened our very way of life. The way of life, BOTH BEFORE settlement, and AFTER! So yep! I think we've got PLENTY to celebrate.

    No affront taken here, Blackbird. None at all.

    IMHO ... I think we have a LOT to celebrate. ALL of us! Both Black AND white Australians. THe reasons are many and varied, but I haven't time to debate that with you here and now.

    I hope your Australia Day has been a HAPPY ONE! {{{Hug}}}
    Cheers,

    I was asking what we were supposed to be celebrating
    Actually, just quickly. And simply........ Perhaps part of what we celebrate is; that our magnificent country was discovered by those not born here at all. Otherwise... it wouldn't be the wonderful country is now is. Wouldn't you agree?

    happy australia day everyone!!

    personally i am just glad that we won the battles at kokoda and elsewhere that stopped the "brisbane line" ever having to be the point of last defence. i am sort of grateful that the french decided that botany bay was "les miserable" opening the way for the brits. (could you imagine it - we would all be mangling the french language instead of english!!)

    australia has a lot of history to be shamed of in it's relationsship to those who were not pure "anglo-saxon" but we have weathered that and i think grown from it. each day we go forward and improve the lot for everyone to truly make this a land we can all be proud of.
