Today is ANZAC day in New Zealand. As the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services Association describe it:
It's always good to keep in our minds that in wars, whether they be justified or not, people suffer and die. And the suffering doesn't stop the day the war does...
ANZAC Day (25 April) is observed in New Zealand as a day of commemoration for those who died in the service of their country and to honour returned servicemen and women.
