As a child, I always went to ANZAC parades. As a young adult I went to dawn services as well, and have tried to attend as often as possible. This year was my first dawn service in many years and I was once again, moved to tears. My eldest children have marched with their cub and scout packs in many parades and I hope our 4 year old will be able to be a part of such an important tradition.

I know ANZAC Day has been and gone, but with the Spirit of Anzac Centenary here in Launceston this week, I’ve been reminded of the importance of not forgetting. My 15 year old son and my husband went today to see the free exhibition and were both moved by it. I hope to go this week (when I get a chance without our 4 year old as it would not be suitable for him). If you get a chance when it tours your area, it is something not to be missed. FREE of charge, you can book session tickets easily on-line. It’s one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences and I’d hate people to miss out because they hadn’t heard about it.

Lest We Forget.
