It's amazing to me how we take such things like driving ourselves to work, having education at our finger tips, living in safe and warm communities and so much more for granted.
We are a country where freedom of rights is expected, there is equality everywhere you turn and our 'big news' stories are so small in comparison with what is going on throughout the world. This didn't just happen overnight and far too often we do not stop to think why this is.
Many many fathers of young children bid fairwell to their young children to fight for our freedom - so that I can enjoy safe walks in my city with my small children.
Many many sacrifices have been given so that we have more then we need. Lest we forget
Thank you everyone who had a hand in creating this wonderful country we live in today.
