Just a quick note on Australia Day...
I am proud to be an Australian and to live in a country of massive privilege but we must remember that this has come at a massive cost to the traditional and rightful owners of this country. Our history has seen people massacred, displaced and stolen. On January 26 we need to recognise the hurt that has occurred at our hands and the rich history and culture of Indigenous Australians. #changethedate won't fix years of mistreatment but it is a gesture in the right direction and to recognise what really happened.
