Australia Day

Australia Day is this Saturday, 26th of January
How will you celbrate? With family or friends? What does it mean to fellow Australians or other countries?
For me its a time to reflect on this young countries origins, its diversity and the opportunities that are still here today. We are still a land of growth, even though we may be doing it a little tougher.
We are still luckier than nations that are starving and in constant fear for freedom, where war is part of everyday life. As a society in general we have been accepting what is happening around us and not how can we change it.
Yes I am proud to be Australian of Italian heritage, my parents saw Australia as a land of opportunity and indeed it is..

Have a great day and be proud

    for those that don't know, we celebrate the arrival of the first fleet at Port Jackson on January 26, 1788, which is now known as Australia day.

    I am also a proud Aussie of Italian heritage. My daughters have aboriginal heritage as well. I hope that in future Australia Day will do more to bring our native people & the ones that came from far away together.

    Happy Australia Day to all Aussies at home and around the world.
