ANZAC Day 2014


It is ANZAC Day today. Today marks 99 years since the ANZAC's came to the Gallipoli Shores. Today we will remember the Australian and New Zealand soldiers that have fallen, fought and served for their country. Today we show respect to those brave soldiers. Today on this day, we will remember them. 

Thousands of NZers have turned up to Dawn Services. More than 3,000 people came to a Dawn Service in Auckland Domain, and hundreds of Cantabrians gathered in Cranmer Square. 

Ode of Remembrance:
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Today also marks my uncle's birthday, who turns 22 today.
