Huge part 2

Huge part 2

As an addendum to my earlier post about the Aborigines.
What a beautiful moment captured in a photo.

Australia apologized on Wednesday for the historic mistreatment of Aborigines, heralding a new era in race relations and moving indigenous people to tears as huge crowds cheered across the nation.

It makes the indigenous community feel, for the first time in a real long time, really feel part of Australia, that it's embraced by the whole Australian nation," Stolen Generation elder Mark Bin Bakar told Reuters. It's about us coming together as a country, acknowledging our past and moving on, accepting each other as brothers and sisters of this nation,he said "Sorry heals the heart, and it goes deep".
