and she cried.

She is prepared, she is done. Absalom.

Christopher, Lorna, and Susan, that’s something the production team has to be proud of. I recall then that it was actually Kris’ pregnancy which made Susan Roces replace her, but in my honest opinion, it was Susan who portrayed the role better.

I have no doubt in my mind that indigenous Australian’s suffered from grief, loss, pain, hurt and humiliation but it was not for the reason they seek compensation. It is not for the reasons Kevin Rudd stood up in Parliament and said sorry.

The person I like most
The person who is the dearest to me in this whole world is my mother, and I can explain many reasons behind that. Firstly, my mother loves me a lot. Her love for me is so pure. She is ready to sacrifice her own happiness for my happiness. She holds my good above everything...

that spins my head. I watch as Ate Lorna puts out her fingers. The bayonets slash through them”. She gets killed brutally in front of everyone else for watching just for her to get her baby back.

getting injured. A personal experience that has happened to me is when my older cousin picked on me, because I was at a young age and he thinks he could do whatever he wanted. The mother in this poem probably thinks she can do whatever she wants to because of her possession on her son.
