That is the HMAS Canberra Memorial today (and I assume every day) kids have been climbing all over it. When I asked a couple of kids to get off it, their father got a little narky about it. I explained they shouldn’t be on it all as it is a War Memorial which washed over him as if it were nothing.
I can’t believe we have such little respect for our past.
In schools the kids are taught about respect for the traditional owners of the land and it seems a given.
We have monuments to Australians who have given their lives in wars and we let the same kids use them as play grounds Grrrrrr is there a better way to sign post these as things of importance.
How do you feel when you see this kind of thing?
