Sorry - On Australia Day

Newer Older

Taken from my balcony over Bondi. This is entirely in camera the helicopter flag just happened to cross over at the correct time.

Update
There is some detail at this link

The "sorry" is aimed at the aboriginal people of Australia, as Australians celebrate Australia Day

    Wow, this is intense, your nation is taking an unprecedented step. The rest of the world should and will take notice. To my knowledge the United States has never really apologized for what was done to the Native populations or for slavery. Namaskar
