This ANZAC Day seemed filled with even more sadness than usual and I struggled to find a topic and words for an article this year.

Instead I offer this piece of legal street art which appeared in Melbourne to mark ANZAC Day in 2016.

I found it poignant.

(Please note, while legal street art is a wonderful thing, any art placed on private property without the owners consent is not art, its vandalism, regardless of artistic merit. We do not support such actions and have been saddened at the expense of having to clean if from private property, it is a cost I would rather see invested in more productive things; like financially supporting local school students and helping the needy).
