I Am Australian by The Seekers

I thought it was appropriate to post these lyrics on Australia Day.  I love my amazing country and the diversity of the people who call it home.

We are one, but we are many,
And from all the lands on earth we come.
We share a dream and sing with one voice:
I am, you are, we are Australian.

Lyrics from here.

That is nice indeed. I wonder if you change the celebreations to Jan 1st, though? Haven´t made up my mind totally on what to think of that. Was kinda shocked to see there are documentaries on your TV-program (can´t remember which channel) about the little man from Austria who started WWII. I´m visiting your country and get confronted with that!

History aside: Happy Australia Day, Sarah!

I'm happy to change the date if Aboriginal people find it offensive. But I doubt everyone will be happy no matter what is decided. It is important that the past is acknowledged, but true reconciliation will never happen unless we all try to move forward in mutual respect together.
