You Are Awesome!

Happy Anzac Day! For those of you not from Australia, April 25 was originally to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in World War 1. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance that now commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. Today is the 99th anniversary of Gallipoli campaign.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.
