Anzac Day

27 April 2005

I was invited to sing the 'Sons of Gallipoli' at the Ataturk Memorial Commemoration on Anzac Day. What a day!!!! We almost got blown off the hill. Despite the weather, it was an honour to do so. Thanks to all those who have emailed me after hearing the song on 'Praise Be' and ZB. The song has touched a chord. Hearing news reports about people who attended the commemorations in Gallipoli, it seems to be a common experience for Kiwis to be deeply moved  when they visit the sight where so many of our fellow Kiwis, Australians and Turks lost their lives.
