Australia Day for me is a day to celebrate all the wonderful aspects of this country.
Freedom, equality, the ability to walk down the street without being gunned down, etc.
It's a bit devastating that a lot of people have to focus on negative aspects (eg. Racism).
I feel that we should acknowledge the past, and learn from it.
But should the past be the focus of the day?
I guess that depends on the person.
I'm not really a patriotic person, so all I really do is remember how lucky I am to live here, and enjoy a day off work/school/other commitments.
