Australian History

Monday, September 17, 2001. :   Today is Australian Citizenship Day, inaugurated in the twenty-first century.

     Australian Citizenship Day was first celebrated in Australia on 17 September 2001. The date chosen as 17 September was the day that the Nationality and Citizenship Act 1948 was renamed, in 1973, to the Australian Citizenship Act 1948.

Australian Citizenship Day is an opportunity for Australians to take pride in their citizenship and consider what it means to be Australian. Australians are encouraged to reflect on the history and changes that have shaped the nation, and on the individuals' roles in shaping the country's future. This is a time to uphold Australia's values of democracy and the concept of a fair go, as well as equality and respect for each other. Common venues for Australian Citizenship Day include the Great Hall at Parliament House in Canberra, the Sydney Opera House, Government House in Tasmania and the Adelaide Zoo.

Thought For Today
For God judges everyone by the same standard.
Romans 2:11 (c) GNB
There is one law for us all to live by. 'Love God and love your neighbour.' it is written... If you ignore it you risk the wrath of both God and mankind.
