Should I end at the beginning?
Or begin at the end?
Today being a significant day in remembrance
Of our Australians and New Zealanders
Who lost their lives or suffered for their new generations to defend.
Was the sound of the “Last Post” a new hope?
Or a reminder of our great loss
A fortunate day now for some
But how many lives have these terrible wars cost?
Conflicts and battles where our innocent women and men,
who were armed and sent in to hell to protect all at home and defend.
Today at Kings Park in Perth, a Memorial Service will be held
To commemorate our brave ANZAC warriors
As a tribute to their bravery, courage and strength.
The Flame of Remembrance will always be burning bright Never to be diminished As a guiding Beacon of everlasting light and life
Words can never express,
For how could we ever forget
Those battles that were fought with courage, bravery and honourable intents.
I have no more words… as the silence echoes back
Reverberating along the Whispering Wall
Lest we should ever, ever forget.

Silence Echoes ~ Hey Momma
A day when we remember “all” of our fallen ANZAC soldiers, both
Crowds will gather at Kings Park Memorial, Western Australia at dawn, where tributes and prayers are shared, wreaths are laid and a the final bugle calls, then…
A minute of silence for PEACE
THE LAST POST
In commemoration of our Heroes and their landing at Gallipoli on the 25th April 1915
The Flame of Remembrance. The Whispering Wall and The Pool of Reflection was dedicated by Queen Elizabeth II at Kings Park and Botanic Garden
The Whispering Wall
The rounded curves of the War Memorial at Kings Park allows for some acoustic reverberation. Sitting at one end and having a friend sit at the other side of the curved seating area you can whisper to each other and hear perfectly like you are right next to each other but are really about 25metres away. Take in the serenity of the views.
The Place of Reflection
Is a beautiful, tranquil hidden treasure in Kings Park. It is dedicated to providing solace for anyone who has suffered loss or trauma.
This peaceful spot offers hope, renewal, understanding and healing. Enjoy a quiet moment here. http://www.placeofreflection.org/
Prior to European settlement and exploration, Kings Park (Mount Eliza) was known as Mooro Katta and Kaarta Gar-up, the Aboriginal names given by the Nyoongar inhabitants. This area has been an important ceremonial and cultural place for the Whadjuk tribe
