of our great nation, for I believe in Australia, in her beauty and her splendor. But I also
believe in her people and their many faces that make this nation great – my Indigenous
brothers and sisters, our struggling migrants, our loyal and faithful diggers, white
Australia, black Australia, multicultural Australia, I believe in all Australia. For I am no
longer the shattered generation, like those who have gone before me; I am the healing
generation with my head to the sun and the shadows behind me. Until this dream
becomes a reality the Australian Indigenous people will remain the skeleton in the
cupboard of Australia’s national life – outcasts in our own land.
My dream, our dream, is not impossible.
Australia must come together and create a better future for all Australians; for we the
healing generation are the voice. We must unite; confront and conquer the adversity of
United; we will make a difference.
United; we are one people, one nation.
United; we are Australian!!
