Stan Grant 

Attached is a link to a video featuring Stan Grant. Stan is a successful indigenous Australian and he speaks very passionately about The Australian Dream. 

Having just come home from New Zealand and seeing how much Maori culture is embedded everywhere throughout New Zealand, Australia’s reluctance to extend the same generosity to our Indigenous brothers and sisters hurts my heart. 

I choose not to celebrate Australia Day each year but I am a proud Australian and I do love my homeland. I just think we have a long way to go before we should celebrate, I guess. Not a popular view I know, but one that I hold dear. When ALL Australians are offered equality and opportunity irrespective of race, gender and age, then we should celebrate. 

We are not there yet. In my opinion. 

Anyway, watch Stan and listen to what he has to say. I shed a few tears.
