On Australia Day
I’m not saying that when the white man came to this land and didn’t commit atrocities to the natives, but are we not supposed to be God-fearing people and, if so, why can’t we live by the following religious saying: “To err is human, but to forgive is divine”. We are sorry over and over, so when are we going to be forgiven for things done in the past. Why can’t we all live together in peace and harmony instead of holding a grudge for years and years?
Gav, Redlynch (10/1). We are all Australians, so why should 98 per cent of us change recognised dates and flags to pander to 2 per cent of the population?
You can change our flag, spit on it, change Australia Day date and that won’t change anything. There are indigenous communities out of control with drunkenness, irresponsible parents and abuse of women and children. Don’t you think indigenous critics would prefer to focus on these issues first? We are one.
