It's the real fair practical needed voice that's needs to be heard. A voice where truth can be expressed heard believed for its own healing of past trauma to heal to unify this country once and for all Its the game changer we need to have. What are we fearful of or waiting for to begin the resolution by being part of the solution not more of a problem to it that needs to be had.
In a all for one One for all. A unity call culturally for the betterment of all Australians. I stand in support of moving forward having recently stood up in support of my own voice being heard believed by me submitting my own letter to Government as passionately for my rights of identity & a real sense of belonging that the royal commission help assist by there own co - designed legal action team members towards truth healing that empowered me to voice with the same voicelessness that disadvantage disempowered disenfranchised my own sense of belonging as a state ward keeping me from being who I needed to be because I lived in fear separated from my original family of origin in abandonment the same way our 1st nation people have been disenfranished & marginalised though cutural trauma not being able to truly speak there own cultural identity & truth in these matters matters that matter the most to there culture individually for the ethical standards morally to the core of Indigenous in there existence why So is quite beyond me as one human being to another to have these disparates these separational issues be still so divided when nature wasn't born that way to exist like that and yet it still allowed to go on and not be re addressed properly in 2021 for the betterment on a local and national level to address this situation for what it is here and now and be given the voice of enshinement in parliament that's so needed so we can move on as a nation an island a body of people for the greater good of mankind as human being evolving organically & Wholistically though the eyes of Aborginal people who have been here since time and memorial with ancestors past and present guidances of land & laws so land and country can be the heart of Uluru statement from the Heart process that leads us on though elders dreamtime story of language arts and science in being that contributing fact that's needed in bringing us forward in all hope and glory of the Australia I 've lived breathe and grown up to love feeling so blessed and priveledge to have our Indigenous heritage told of identity voice treaty truth real fair practical for the iconic inheritance significant value of knowledge processed land nature and country I find myself asking today what are we so fearful of in giving this gift of country back in historical content of treaty like our great neighbouring NZ did to Maori shown as the way forward for all New Zealanders as one country one standard for all in the show of solaridity to there sovereignity in the same way we are asking to stand in this process with our Aborginal Elders to mark there needs in showing respect dignity and understanding for this process to begin in earnest now!!! Its time to all sit around at a table to resume dialogue in this conversation for healing growth development that can only be not only part of the solution but the wholistic approach to a great country again let this movement begin it's own needed story re told the right way Always was always will be open dialogue by it's members to our Government parliamentary members be the new governing body mind and spirit of humanity be the new individual HUMAN CARE factor that been missing from this all personally today Thank you
