I just watched Australian PM Kevin Rudd give his "sorry" speech. It was stirring stuff, even for a cynic like myself. Of course I will always believe that only actual, real, measurable change is needed in order to improve the lives of indigenous Australians, but at least we've gone one important step in that direction.

It was also great to see so many people in parliament wiping away tears, including the indigenous visitors.

Yep, I thought it was pretty good and yes, I too think that practical applications will work better to improve the lot of our indigenous brothers and sisters. The apology will hopefully create a better relationship between indigenous and non-indigeous peoples so that social, health and education programmes will have more successful outcomes.

I pray that this will be a turning point in the future of this country and all it's peoples.
