The Guardian recently published an article by Chris Sarra titled, We Indigenous people are stronger than we believe, and smarter than we know.
Carra points out that Indigenous people are survivors – the ancestors of the world’s oldest civilizations.
For as long as I can remember, thanks to my mum and my dad, I’ve always known that being Aboriginal was awesome. That I was no better or worse than any other. And that hard work, service and compassion was my obligation.
That even in the face of inhumanity, I should treat people as I wanted to be treated.
Those values and beliefs strengthen my core and kept safe my soul.
And you are not forgotten … and we will come for you.
