Ev­ery­one has a story to tell

Southern Riverina news - - AUSTRALIA DAY CELEBRATIONS 2019 - Con­trib­uted by Austin Evans, NSW Mem­ber for Mur­ray.

Ev­ery­one and every story is the fo­cus of Aus­tralia Day 2019.

This year’s theme typ­i­fies our life in con­tem­po­rary Aus­tralia; a unique and beau­ti­ful coun­try, where we all have a story to tell.

Each of our sto­ries re­flect our own back­grounds, who we are, our cul­tures, as well as our ex­pe­ri­ences and be­liefs, mak­ing us the most di­verse peo­ple in the world.

So let’s mark this Aus­tralia Day 2019 by telling and lis­ten­ing to these sto­ries, whether it be as a proud Indige­nous Aus­tralian, as a new cit­i­zen, or as some­one whose an­ces­tors came from other parts of the world.

Use this day to come to­gether and com­mu­ni­cate our sto­ries while cel­e­brat­ing the free­doms we hold dearly and the com­mu­ni­ties we love and share.

Of course, the day also marks a sig­nif­i­cant be­gin­ning for many peo­ple as they be­come Aus­tralian ci­ti­zens.

We wel­come you with open arms and hope you will en­joy liv­ing in this won­der­ful part of the world.

Ev­ery­one has a unique story, so let’s share these as we cel­e­brate all that we have in our great na­tion.
