A day of loss
I woke before the sun rose today, my heart felt the intense weight of all the moments that the 25th of April marks, before my body had even begun to stir. For all the Blakfellas who were sent to fight FOR an institution that killed our people,
for all the parents who never got to see their babies return home from war,
For my beautiful cousin Lauren, who will forever feel the intense weight of loss on this day, and every day, of her beautiful boy Deklan.
