Respect for all those diggers

THE Coffs Coast turned on its best for Anzac Day on Saturday with brilliant blue skies and summer-like temperatures helping to swell attendances and make everyone feel good.

Of course Anzac Day is a day of remembering, of paying respect, and a day of thanking.

Remembering all those Diggers who have fought to preserve freedom and in doing so allow us to live the lives we do today.

Remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and also remembering that we have troops serving overseas today working to make our world a more peaceful place.

Showing the proper respect for what they had to endure to keep our freedoms and our way of life.

Then thanking them for doing just that.

And it was particularly pleasing to see so many schools taking part in the Anzac Day parades.

All too often the exploits and the suffering to keep our freedom gets forgotten as it passes from one generation to the next.

Thankfully, the spirit of the Anzac just keeps getting bigger as new generations of children embrace what is so good about being Australian.
