ANZAC Day 2010 - Atonement

Approaching our own Memorial Day weekend, I thought it worthwhile to highlight an analogous day set aside by our Allies in Australia and New Zealand. ANZAC Day is observed about a month earlier than Memorial Day in the U.S., and I had every intention of writing something in honor of ANZAC Day this year, but didn't get it done. Instead, I am including a link to a blog post by a friend in Australia at Tessa's Take, featuring the following painting. Check it out here. It's well worth the read.

ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Corps.
