Today we're taking a break from the leisurely little meandering through my musical appreciation.

Today, in Australia it's ANZAC Day. The 97th anniversary of the WWI dawn landing at Gallipoli of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp, to me the most important of all the days we commemmorate as a nation. As a nation we've been involved in many military confrontations, the reasons for some were clear, the reasons for others not as clear, but none were as important to our nation as that landing. At the time as a united country we were only a teenager, but the efforts of our servicemen in that conflict forged us into the people that we are today. Our ideals, morals, attitudes, comradeship and larrikin nature presented to the world and still shown to this day.

In a few hours I'm off to our local dawn service, but before then I'd like to share this peice. I had a completely differnet peice in mind, which I'll share tomorrow, but this peice belongs here.

kapuahi: (H50 - Steve - pray)
I never believed that there were world events of such a magnitude that the moment would stand still and be etched in our collective memories forever. I hadn't been alive for JFK's assassination or the moon landing, so aside from Elvis' death there had never been a moment in my lifetime that was so monumental that it changed the shape of the world that we live in.

Until that day. )
