It's ANZAC day.
It's the 100 year anniversary of a particularly bad battle in Turkey, that has somehow come to represent the apex of Australian and NewZealand glorification of war. Sure, we say it's not glorifying war - but seriously how is this wall to wall coverage not glorification? The coverage in all media over the past week has numbed my senses. Not made me reflect on sacrifice.
All our focus on this one stupid battle? I'd like to put some focus on those efforts to stop the slaughter.
Gallipolli was ultimately a battle lost for the ANZACs.
