Shrine of Remembrance

Yesterday we were in Melbourne for the NYE celebrations and stayed in a hotel in St Kilda Road. I have never been to the Shrine in all my years. So it was time for a visit. Well I was mightily impressed. It was an emotional journey seeing that I have forebears who fought in those world wars and also considering my participation, be it involuntary, in the Vietnam war. They have a great display.

What was of great interest to me was the comprehensive display of PEACE. Adorning the walls were quotes and pics from the Dalai Lama , Martin Luther King and others. So it was not all about shoot em up cowboys.

Well worth the visit.
