Today marks National Sorry Day, a day to remember the Stolen Generations and to recognise the healing that is still ongoing. It is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on how we can all play a part in the healing process for our nation. 🖤💛❤️
It is a day to recognise the historical injustice of the Stolen Generations and the ongoing pain caused by the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The Stolen Generations saw Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children forcibly removed from their families and communities and today is still an ongoing source of intergenerational trauma for Aboriginal and Torres Islander families, communities, and peoples. 🖤💛❤️
While this date carries great significance for the Stolen Generations and other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, it is also commemorated by Australians around the country. 🖤💛❤️
As Rural Lifestyle Options Australia, we recognise the power of saying sorry and commit to action towards an equitable future.
We are sorry. 🖤💛❤️
