We often want second chances. Sometimes we don't deserve them. The feeling of regret and wishing for another chance is common when a couple separates. Whoever is at fault usually searches for sympathy as they have realized in hindsight their mistakes.

Happy BIRTHDAY Mr. President! You were one of the greatest we have ever had. Oh, how we miss your soothing voice, you common sense and your patriotism.

Vincent Lingiari AM (1908 – 21 January 1988), was an Aboriginal rights activist. Lingiari was a member of the Gurindji people. In his earlier life he worked as a stockman at Wave Hill Cattle Station.

(From Little Things Big Things Grow)

Wave Hill Walk-Off:

Wave Hill Cattle Station is located approximately 600 km south of Darwin in the Northern Territory. From the late nineteenth century it was run by the British pastoral company, Vesteys. Vesteys employed the local Indigenous people, the Gurindji, to work on Wave Hill. But working conditions were extremely poor and wages were very low when compared to those of non Indigenous employees.
In 1966, Lingiari, a member of the Gurindji who had worked at Wave Hill, and recently returned from a period of hospitalisation in Darwin, led a walk-off of indigenous employees of Wave Hill as a protest against the work and pay conditions. While there had been complaints from Indigenous employees about conditions on Wave Hill over many years, including an inquiry during the 1930s that was critical of Vestey's employment practices, the walk-off had a focus that was aimed at a wider target than Vestey's. Before 1968 it was illegal to pay an indigenous worker more than a specified amount in goods and money. In many cases, the government benefits for which Indigenous employees were eligible were paid into pastoral companies’ accounts, rather than to the individuals.
The protesters established the Wattie Creek Camp and demanded the return of some of their traditional lands. So began the eight-year fight by the Gurindji people to obtain title to their land.

The Wave Hill strike would eventually reshape the agenda of relationships between indigenous Australians and the wider community. Although initially an employee-rights action, it soon became a major federal issue when the Gurindji people demanded the return of their traditional lands.
The strike lasted 8 years. Over that time, support for Aboriginal rights grew as the struggle intensified. The protest eventually led to the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976. This act gave indigenous Australians freehold title to traditional lands in the Northern Territory and, significantly, the power to negotiate over mining and development on those lands, including what type of compensation they would like.
An important and symbolic event in Australian history occurred when, during an emotional ceremony in 1975, Prime Minister Gough Whitlam poured the local sand into Vincent Lingiari's hands and handed the Wave Hill station back to the Gurindji people.
On 7 June 1976, Lingiari was named a Member of the Order of Australia for his services to the Aboriginal people.

Beloved, all of us have things in ourselves that we want to see changed, bad habits that we want to kick. The question is: How do we get there? Do we depend on our own efforts to change? Or do we depend on God’s grace in our lives? 

On God’s part, He is not interested in behavior modification! He is interested in inward heart transformation that can only be brought about by His grace. When you catch a revelation of just how much God loves you, effortless transformation will come without you struggling for it, and you will see those bad habits fall away! http://josephprince.com/

This is yet another broken promise from an untrustworthy government.

Only the Coalition can deliver a stable, secure and predictable government. Joe Hockey. Shadow Treasurer.

It’s a second term for Vice President Joe Biden, and more of the same. The Gaffe-Master apparently has not really cleaned up his act much at all …even though he continues to tout himself as a legitimate 2016 presidential candidate.
