NATIONAL SORRY DAY is on 26 May, the anniversary of the day that the " Bringing Them Home Report " was tabled in Federal Parliament in 1997.

NATIONAL APOLOGY DAY is on 13 Feb, the anniversary of Kevin Rudd's speech and a unanimous vote for a motion of apology in the Federal Parliament in 2008.

  

In the words of Brian Doyle-

 

***** " I can only bow and pray quietly against such unthinkable pain....."
