Today the Australian Parliament says "sorry" to the stolen generations of Aboriginal people.

Today Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd, said "sorry" on behalf of the Parliament of Australia for the policies of the past which resulted in around 50 000 Aboriginal children being removed from their families.
Sorry has a very strong significance in Aboriginal Culture and is not just a case of meaningless words. It was said by both sides of Parliament with meaning and emotion and goes with a bipartisan agreement to put aside politics and work towards a better future for indigenous Australians, the oldest continuing culture on Earth.
