John Howard - Actor
"...I speak for all Australians in expressing a profound sorrow to the Aboriginal people. I am sorry. We are sorry. Let the world know and understand, that it is with this sorrow, that we as a nation will grow and seek a better, a fairer and a wiser future. Thank you."
John Howard, July 3, 2000
I found this speech (or at least parts of it) when I first heard it on a comedy show, very moving. I thought at the time, if only the politicians would emulate what was said. Todays speeches are a move in the right direction. Its a start, so lets keep going that way. Together.
[Besides its our 42nd parliament...and 42 was always a magic number.
