From Little Things Big Things Grow

A recent cover of the Australian early 90’s rock protest song “From Little Things Big Things Grow” has risen to the top of the music charts in AU.  It includes excerpts from speeches by Prime Ministers Paul Keating and Kevin Rudd. It is part of a campaign by the GetUp! advocacy group in Australia.

“The apology to the Stolen Generations marked a place in Australian history…we must continue to remember the feelings and hope that grew out of the events on that day and plant the seed for a further process of reconciliation and equality for all Australian citizens.”

Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.  ~Paul Boese
