Anzac Day: The First Hundred Years

Today we remember those who put their lives on the line and those who are currently doing the same.
It is a day for honouring those who fell, those who served and those who are serving now.
It is a day to put yourself in someone else's shoes – the wife, the mother, the daughter – and trying to imagine what they experienced when their husbands, sons, fathers went away and did not return... and for those serving now, always praying nothing bad will happen to those they love most.
It is a very emotional day for me. I cannot describe it.
How does one begin to understand...
