ANZAC day... Lest We Forget

Hey Everyone,
Life had been a little complicated recently so I have been struggling to keep writing on here. To be honest this is the first time in about 10 days that i have even made it to the computer to sit down and write something... Anything! Mum has had post-surgery complications, so I ask for all those who pray/meditate/send positive vibes (etc.) if you could possibly spare a thought for mum at the moment! That would be amazing! :) Thanks!

Anyways, tomorrow is ANZAC day and it is a day where we can honor those in our communities that have served in the armed forces. I have friends in the Army, Navy and Air Force. And I have family & friends who have served around the world in the armed forces. So Thank You for your service it has meant a lot!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with ANZAC day... here are some brief notes about it!

ANZAC stands for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. ANZAC day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by both the Australian and the New Zealand forces during the First World War. This was a collaboration to take the Gallipoli peninsular in Turkey. Things went badly for the ANZAC's but the spirit and mate-ship, that endured in an impossible situation, is an inspiration to Australians and New Zealanders today! (If you want to know more about the history of the ANZAC day tradition please check out the Australian War Memorial Website at http://www.awm.gov.au/commemoration/anzac/anzac_tradition.asp

As is tradition, in the early hours of the morning, thousands of people all over Australia and New Zealand (and thousands of people in Gallipoli, Turkey) will watch the sun rise tomorrow and remember the ANZAC's!
