    This is how I feel too. My Grandfather served and was at Tro.bruk. What those boys went through was horrific, as is all war. I always think about him today more so than the anniversary of his death.

    I wish that war never existed, but while it does, anyone who has ever served has my thanks and gratitude.

    I am so grateful to all the men and women who have given their life so that we have freedom and an amazing country to live in. I love that there is a day dedicated to honouring them.

    It was cold and pouring rain in Melbourne but that did not stop thousands of people attending to dawn service. I'm glad I went.

    Lest we forget.

    Went to our local dawn service & it was really moving. I am so grateful to the amazing men & women who have & still do serve in the forces that keep our country free from the devastating effects of war. Lest we forget

    Watching the marches & services from home as it is pouring rain & DD has a cold. Will take her to a march another year when she is a bit bigger & not sick.

    ANZAC day is never considered a holiday in our house either. It is a day of reflection & to give thanks to all those who have served & those who currently serve their country.

    Lest we forget.
