Today is Charlotte's first ANZAC day so we went up to Memorial hill for the Dawn Service, (she's woken us up at 5am plenty of times, this is our revenge lol).
It's really important to us that she learns what these men & women have sacrificed for our country and also that although she doesn't have to agree with why we are fighting, it is still important that we respect the men & women that have fought (and still are fighting) for our country.
I feel ashamed to be Australian when I hear stories of how returned Vietnam Veterens were treated, and so I think it's important to teach children to protest the war but to honour the soldiers.
