Today is the day our country finally got it's act together. No, I think we did that on November 24th last year when we elected the new Rudd Labour Government. Their first matter of business was to say Sorry. The previous Government refused to say Sorry for 11 years, but that time had passed, and it is a New Day.
I listened to Mr Rudd's speech and it made tears well in my eyes. It was one of those moments, those iconic Australian moments, like listening to I Still Call Australia Home, or the National Anthem at The Olympics, or when we all sing Waltzing Matilda. I think a lot more people are proud to call Australia home today.
