(Video) Statement: Pathway of Heroes

In October, the great town of Perth unveiled their Pathway of Heroes, to honour those who courageously fought overseas to defend the liberties and freedoms of those abroad.

Those we remember tomorrow and everyday, held the strong belief that even with our differences, we have much more in common, and that the society we built together is better than any alternative, and worth defending.

Courage is not the absence of fear, it is doing what you know is right - despite your fears.

Here is the speech I gave and repeated in the house to honour those we lost, lest we forget.
