Communities gather to mark National Sorry Day

   - May 26



May 26 marks National Sorry Day. This is the story of Noel, an Aboriginal individual who discovered his Aboriginal heritage in 2006. He believes it is important for people to share their stories, hoping that it will encourage others to do the same. Noel is part of the Willem Will Reign community on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, a unique group of Indigenous people from across Australia who come together to learn, connect with their culture, and feel a sense of community. They have established a scar tree as a symbol of healing and reconciliation, providing a place for remembering and contemplation on Sorry Day. The community hopes that this tree will continue to grow and serve as an eternal symbol for their journey towards a brighter future.
