It was extraordinary for me to then be able to embrace and to kiss Aboriginal elders as they came into the parliament building, and one wmoan said to me, it's the first time a white flela had ever kissed her in her life, and she was over 70.

Original Text

The important thing that I remember is staring in the faces of all those from Aboriginal Australia as they came to listen to this apology. It was extraordinary to see, for example, old women telling me the stories of when they were five years old and literally ripped away from their parents, like this lady here. It was extraordinary for me to then be able to embrace and to kiss Aboriginal elders as they came into the parliament building, and one woman said to me, it's the first time a white fella had ever kissed her in her life, and she was over 70. That's a terrible story.
