"For the pain, suffering and hurt of these Stolen Generations, their descendants and for their families left behind, we say sorry.About fucking time!
To the mothers and the fathers, the brothers and the sisters, for the breaking up of families and communities, we say sorry.
And for the indignity and degradation thus inflicted on a proud people and a proud culture, we say sorry."

It was a fairly momentous thing to watch Kevin Rudd deliver his Sorry speech to Parliament today. Such a long time overdue and I'm very happy that my government had the guts and compassion to do it.
