“It’s easy to get caught up in the importance of day to day life. However, we must never forget those people who made the greatest sacrifice to ensure we get to live in a free and democratic society. “We all have a responsibility not only to honour their memory, but also to honour their legacy - democracy, freedom, choice and tolerance.”
