Let us all rejoice for what we have, the wonderful land we share, the wealth of the soil, the sunshine, and the sea and whenever it comes, the rain.
Let us rejoice our common touch, our egalitarian values, our larrikin spirit, our shared values.
Today is not a day for differences or reflection on failure. Sure our land is not perfect and we can see even better days ahead, but our land is as good as any other on earth and a damn sight better than most.
Australians all let us rejoice!
