Fabulous speaker; it was a pleasant surprise to hear his opening Koori singing. I am just discovering TED. I also met some of stolen generation as a kid in orphanages and then later again during silent protests over last 5 years while gathering to get the current Enquiry and Royal Commission started. There stories are tough and tragic.

You do post a lot of great videos that I would not have found without joining this site. Thanks :cheers:

from Times Power by Adrienne Rich ... I also like Wilfred Owen's war poems
