SORRY SONG by Kerry Fletcher

Written for the Stolen Generations of Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders

and dedicated to all First Nations peoples whose lives have been affected by the policy of Indigenous Child Removals.

The forced removal of so many Aboriginal children from their mothers, families and communities inflicted profound grief, suffering and loss that continues to affect them, their communities and descendants.

Kerry Fletcher wrote Sorry Song in 1998, on behalf of all of us whose hearts ache when we think of the pain those children and communities suffered and the pain which they still endure today.

A new verse and chorus has been added to reflect the overwhelming community response since the federal government broke its silence by making the historic Apology in Canberra on 13th February 2008.
