Anzac Day

Anzac day is set aside to honor the Australians who lost their lives in wars and conflicts around the world, including those young men and boys, aged from 15 – 45 who fought in World War I. In Perth, over 50,000 residents gathered for the dawn services at Kings Park, waiting motionless in the darkness to remember their fallen countrymen and women as they marked the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915.  Later, thousands lined the streets to watch with respect as hundreds of veterans marched in the Anzac day parade.  Lest we forget.

I give a silent prayer for peace and an end to conflict in the world.
