Australian Story

Our friend John was the subject of Australian Story tonight. Paul met John not long after he had discovered that his birth father was one of the five Australian journalists murdered in Balibo, East Timor in 1975. John's father never knew of his existence. It's an incredible story and very moving. And shameful. If you missed it you can catch it again on ABC2 tomorrow or on ABC on Saturday afternoon.

I just watched it. What a great story of how the whole family has come together to fight for justice.
I'm really looking forward to the movie coming out so that more of us are educated about what really happened.

That was an amazing story. I had been heading off to bed for one of my earliest nights in history, when I got drawn in and couldn't tear myself away. The whole thing showed the true milk of human kindness, acceptance, everything. The lessons to draw from it are innumerable.
