Sorry to the "Stolen Generation"

Let's not hesitate to apologize finally to the aboriginal "stolen generation".

Sorry for taking you away from a remote community where alcoholism is rife.
Sorry for taking you away from a destitute life where the average life expectancy is 17 years less than in the white community.
Sorry for putting you into a society where which has a work ethic and material wealth is a measure of success.
Sorry for depriving you of the opportunity to develop blindness from trachoma eye disease.
Sorry for depriving you of a 75% chance to die before the age of 65
Sorry for removing you from a community that is plagued by child abuse and rape.
Sorry for depriving you of the joys of petrol sniffing.
