Lest we Forget - Wednesday Wishes

Today is ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand. I want to share with you an extract from a Banjo Patterson Poem "We're All Australians Now" which was "published as an open letter to the troops at The Dardanelles, 1915" source : http://allpoetry.com/poem/8485469-Were_All_Australians_Now-by-A_B__Banjo_Paterson

"Australia takes her pen in hand 
To write a line to you, 
To let you fellows understand 
How proud we are of you."

This Wednesday Wishes blog post showcases a wish for peace, and many uniquely Australian symbols, some specifically associated with the Anzacs and their past times such as Two Up, and most importantly, remembers those who made the ultimate sacrifice and helped to shape the history of our wonderful country.

Lest we forget.
