It was a great day in Australia's history yesterday as Prime Minister Kevin Rudd apologised to the indigenous Australians on behalf of the Government and all Australian citizens.  Congrats to the Koori peoples and three cheers Kev.

Being an Australian I too was very moved by this apology that has been a long time coming. My step-mother is full blooded Koori (indigenous Australian) and her family was part of the stolen generation, so I was doubly pleased that the Australian government apologised to all those Australians who have not been treatly fairly or equally since European colonisation.Thanks Gainore for bringing this subject to the Care2 site....it makes the whole world a little bit smaller and together
