ANZAC Day.

Ninety years ago today, the ill-fated Gallipoli landings were made by the ANZAC (Australia and New Zealand Army Corps) troops in an attempt to open a new eastern front in the First World War after the Western Front had bogged down in a stalemate. This ANZAC Day, we remember not only the sacrifices of Australian and Kiwi troops at Gallipoli or the rest of the First World War, but in all conflicts.

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.

- For The Fallen by Laurence Binyon

I don't believe in painted roses or bleeding hearts
While bullets rape the night of the merciful
I'll see you again when the stars fall from the sky
And the moon has turned red over One Tree Hill
