Do You Support the Reconciliation Process in Australia?

Question by Zucchinisinratatouille: Do you support the reconciliation process in Australia?
I feel that relations between Indigenous Australians (Aborigines) and other Australians need to be set on a positive footing so that our country can have a peaceful, harmonious, and above all just society.

The first step is to acknowledge the damage done to the Aboriginal peoples by the invasion by the British in 1788, and the consequent and subsequent hurtful events. This includes the occupation of their traditional lands, the destruction of habitat, and the removal (for whatever motivation) of children from Aboriginal parents.

The symbolic gesture we are being asked to take is simply to say “sorry”, not to acknowledge personal guilt, but to say “We acknowledge your existence, your humanity, and your loss, and we share your grief”.

Will you join me in this gesture by asking our next Federal Government, whichever party wins, to say sorry? You can do this by clicking this link:

Views From The Left

Filed under: grief loss of a child

But here is the truth I have known since I was a child, innocent of any loss that would eventually come my way: no matter how hard evil tries, good always wins in the end. Always. Ask the Nazis. Ask Timothy McVeigh. Ask Osama Bin Laden. My faith in the …

“Imagine…” Infant Loss Awareness


“Imagine…” Infant Loss Awareness – 30000 babies die from Stillbirth in the USA every year… compare that to the 2000 that die to SIDS. Causes of Infant Mortality like SIDS or Prematurity receive a tremendous amount of funding for research and support. Important support includes not only research funding but also public awareness. My daughter was a victim of both prematurity and stillbirth. I support both causes. I am however more outraged by the lack of support for stillbirth. Parents of stillborns are treated like lepers. As if their child never existed. If my baby had taken one breath and then died I would have been treated an entirely different way. Change needs to be made… And change will only come when the public is educated and OUTRAGED. Help these parents… these babies by Favoriting this video… send it to someone you know. Learn the facts.
