FROM LITTLE THINGS
When I was sweet 16 I was presented to the then newly elected Labor Prime Minister Gough Whitlam at the inaugural Liverpool Scottish Debutante Ball.
Little would I know the significance of this moment or the man who would come to change a nation.
When he died last year it was only then I found out what Gough Whitlam had contributed to making this country of ours so great.
He brought compassion, hope, culture and dignity to a country that had lost its soul. He invested in our young people for a bigger and brighter future to carry forward the hopes of a nation.
I have never heard of any other politician spoken in the same breath as Gough Whitlam. Not only was he respected he was loved.
