New Year’s Resolutions and a New Australia(?)

I read somewhere that by January 14th, most people have failed to keep their New Year’s Resolutions. That sort of fits with me – at least for resolutions numbers 2-37, which includes my resolution to be a more efficient writer of interesting blogs.

But maybe today is a good day for turning over a new leaf. This morning, like many Australians, I sat in my kitchen and listened to the government’s official apology to the Stolen Generations of our indigenous people. How ridiculous that it took so long for those words to be spoken. I sure hope this resolution towards reconciliation lasts longer than my New Year’s resolutions. I hope it lasts forever.
