    I can't watch it on TV especially the documentaries..I just look at those young boys, and think omg what they did. I feel so humble and grateful.

    I always get emotional but today was the worse I have ever been.
    After the march finished I couldnt go to the service so I walked along the beach blubbering thank god no one noticed then I sat down and rang my mate
    I think because Anzac Day has always been important to me especially when the kids were little we always went to the service
    And when I saw that picture of JJ on FB that got me going

    Jen
    I am beautiful inside and out so I should love myself unconditionally.

    I feel the same......it is heartbreaking to begin to think what they have been through. We should be very proud of their courage.

    Happyas, you know I see how young those boys were, so full of courage, even if it was forced upon them. They fought for our freedom, and for the freedom of all the drug pushers, petty thieves, and the like..Makes a person angry at the injustice of it all as well..

    I love seeing the Horses Jen.
    My grandfather always went to the dawn service.
    I used to watch the March with my grandmother every year when I lived on the Central Coast. Then after that, gran would meet him over at the RSL club and she would be on the door handing out poppies, then helping in the kitchen making the lunches. She was very involved. They were lucky the RSL was directly across the road from their home.
    Those pics reminded me of watching the March at Long Jetty..
