Summary
Discusses the meaning of peace; reconciliation at a grass roots level has been progressing, however the ultimate achievement of true and lasting national reocnciliation remains little more than a dream (p. 13); a starting point towards national reconciliation would be national acknowledgement of the past and the effects of past injustice and oppression on the present and the future; the doctrine of terra nullius upon which the nation was founded, was only overturned in 1992; this discriminatory injustice was reinforced by the Constitution and by new laws of the Commonwealth Parliament such as the Commonwealth Franchise Bill of 1902 which as introduced would have allowed Aboriginal Australians to vote, but as amended and enacted prevented Aboriginal Australians from being placed on the electoral roll; mentions the new 'Scouting in Indigenous Communities' program as an axample of a program which has been developed, taking into account the needs of Indigenous youth in outback communities; hopes for the ideal of all being accepted as true equals
