Vale Gough Whitlam

A memorial service for the recently departed Gough Whitlam was held Sydney's Town Hall yesterday.  It was an emotional day for many because although he was Prime Minister for only three short years (1972-1975), in that time he changed the face of Australia.

These are the words Gough Whitlam specifically asked that we be reminded of:

 “That grand vision to promote equality, to involve the people of Australia in the decision-making processes of our land, and to liberate the talents and uplift the horizons of the Australian people.”
