Ukamirra ... At the going down of the sun.



Ukamirra is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning sunset.
Today is Anzac Day

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served."

Lest we forget
Today Victoria Remembers. 
In most ceremonies of remembrance across our nation 
there is a reading of the Ode Poem:
'They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them'
For the Fallen: Laurence Binyon
