We went to the street footpath at the top of our drive just before 6 am. A good number of our neighbours and friends were out on the footpath - probably about a quarter of the potential number. There were people dotted up and down the street outside their homes.
Someone just up the road had a radio with decent clear speaker and we stood and listened to the broadcast of the Dawn Service.
As always, it was very moving but perhaps a little more so this morning - given the current circumstances. It was great just being there in a loose group with a common bond on our special day.
It appears that we have found another way to celebrate Anzac Day and I wouldn’t be surprised if this approach catches on and continues even after the current situation has passed.
