ACT Gallery AWM
Australian War Memorial Friday 3 October 2014 Annual Wreath laying ceremony

’We reflect on all those women, in all parts of the world, who have served or are serving in areas of conflicts. To those who have waited or are waiting at home - caring, sharing and working - to maintain the fabric of the Australian society we also give thanks and reflect on their contribution to our nation’s well being.
To those who continue to care for those who have returned from conflicts, past and present, we are grateful and give thanks.
To those who are working, around the world, to achieve peaceful solutions in areas of conflict or potential conflict - we trust that women are being consulted and included in those solutions.
In our present world - working towards an assurance of true peace, freedom and justice for all, should be everyone’s responsibility.’
