Working Smarter: ANZAC Day 2012

Today is ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand, a public holiday. ANZAC stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps and commenced at the beginning of World War I after we lost thousands of soldiers while invading Turkey. English commanders had sent us to the wrong landing site and our soldiers were decimated. Thousands of young Turkish men died too.

Australians have given their lives in may wars and still continue to do so in Afghanistan and Iraq.

We owe these people greatly because they have enabled us to live free, democratic lives, although sadly, our democracy is slowly being eroded.
"At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. Lest we forget."

PS: A business post will appear tomorrow.
