We all have stories to tell. That's why we live out our lives on social media.

Stories of land dispossession, stolen children and decimation of culture and family.
"Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were Australia’s first explorers, first navigators, first engineers, first farmers, first botanists, first scientists, first diplomats, first astronomers and first artists." NAIDOC
This week is NAIDOC week "ALWAYS WAS, ALWAYS WILL BE."
Let's truly listen with our hearts.
