Australia Day

As a country we couldn’t even agree on the width of railways.

As a country we can’t even agree on a national day. Or respect those who disagree.

Every Australia Day is the same: somebody’s yelling at the immigrants, yelling at the Aboriginals, yelling at all and those who don’t think like you.

Every Australia Day underlines how much we’ve progressed in 230 years. Methinks not much at all.

Every Australia Day someone wants to change the date. Every Australia Day there’s the same social media pile-on.

Every Australia Day no one learns from the previous year, or the one before that.

Australia Day is divisive. Rather than yelling at those who disagree why not ask how can we work together to create a better day?

Otherwise this post will be repeated next year!
