The love mother stores in her huge heart for freedom and her children. (Giana will love this movie too)Border of Despair was a great story even Gabbie enjoyed the 3 and 1/2 hour long moving story it does go with the story of Lives of Others and Falling Slowly

Story of Anzac Anzac: the language of a legacy
FOR many Australians, Anzac Day is far more than a simple public holiday.

Australia's last surviving World War I soldier, Jack Ross, will be enjoying a quiet Anzac Day with his daughter at his nursing home in Bendigo, Victoria, this Friday. The original ANZACS tell their stories in their own words.
The blood and glory of the landing at Gallipoli is said to have turned Australia from a federation of states into one nation. As the 90th anniversary of the end of the Great War nears, Max Prisk brings together from Herald files the story of that deadly beginning - told by those who went through it.
Sentiment of Anzac: Mr Ross, who turned 109 in March, last attended an Anzac Day march two years ago at Kangaroo Flat, but now finds it difficult to even get in or out of a car. Lest we forget is a term taken very seriously by the children and grandchildren of Marlborough's war veterans, with Anzac parade crowds growing ...
Watching the Anzac Day march on the telly was an annual event as I grew up. My grandfather had been in the thick of it during World War I, so it was just something you did. Wading through the often-naff commentary each year, I sometimes wondered about the point of it all. But then you'd see the proud bearing of old soldiers, medals on their chests, all marching together - and you'd hear the dreadful stories of their battles as they marched - and at some point or other you'd get a little teary.
