THURSDAY MAY 26 : Sorry Day – a National Day of Healing
from 10am to 2:30pm at Tarndanyangga (Victoria Square)
Mutual understanding is central to meaningful reconciliation.
Reconciliation is not about flinging dollars at problems. It’s about ways of thinking that acknowledge social justice and fundamental human rights.
It’s about leadership from the top and action at the grass roots level. That’s how change occurs.
Working for human rights is a harder task than extending compassion. But it’s the only long term solution.
Prof. Lowitja O’Donoghue, Flinders Street Baptist Friday Forum, April 8th 2005, 1pm.
