Australia Remembers – A letter of thanks

Below we are sharing a letter of thanks from our public. Letters and remarks like these that make us proud to be able to bring this service to the public nationally via Channel 7.

Good Morning,

It is with the tears in my eyes that i write to you this morning. I have just finished watching your coverage of the Gold Coast dawn service that was seen on Seven live around Australia.

That service was the most emotional and moving of all the dawn services I have ever seen. What a backdrop, what an experience it was. The Currumbin RSL and the Seven Network deserve truly the highest commendation for an absolutely stunning television event.

For the first time ever I have felt so connected and touched by what the Anzacs has meant for so long to so many. At 32 I feel reborn and awakened by the sacrifice of 90 years ago.

Anzac Day has a glorious future and RSL branches like Currumbin are to be thanked because they indeed have set the standard and their professionalism should not be understated.

I am so proud to be an Aussie this morning, and next year i will make the trip to the Gold Coast for sure. I would only hope those who missed this mornings coverage attend next year, I only wish I taped the service this morning.

Could sometime time today you play And the band played Waltzing Matilda by Eric Bogle, it would be appreciated.

Well done Seven Sunrise.

Lest we forget.

Sunshine Coast
