“They gave their lives”... That simple inscription sits above the door to the Australian War Memorial. These four words etched in stone reflect the legacy of countless soldiers whose names line the poppy-covered walls leading toward the entrance. Their sacrifices are permanently memorialised for future generations to admire, and even emulate, because they were directed toward something meaningful – something bigger than themselves. Toward something of absolute importance and lasting significance, impacting decades to follow.
