Happy long weekend, everyone!
I hope today you get to enjoy some Aussie sunshine and seaside, a pie with sauce, and maybe a lamington, if you’re feeling fancy.
Also, if there are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people talking about colonisation, lend them an ear–it’s an opportune time for them to draw attention to the issue.
[Personally: Is it not awful that we commemorate the day some Britons showed up with diseases, guns, and a racist attitude? Oughtn’t we celebrate modern Australia on Federation Day or something, when the country as we now know it started existing? What do you think?]
