New Zealand – Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill – Third Reading

Very sweet. From the Huffington Post:

“People watching from the public gallery and some lawmakers immediately broke into song after the result was announced, singing the New Zealand love song “Pokarekare Ana” in the indigenous Maori language.”

MP Maurice Williamson may also win an award for one of the funniest parliamentary contributions I have heard.

Holocaust Remembrance Day

This was ten years ago but I think it is a strong testament to the resilience of humanity despite the worst of horrors and our ability to triumph and seize a better future despite the challenges. Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day – Yom Hashoah.

From the Jersusalem Post at the time:

The Israeli F-15s, originally invited to Poland to celebrate the Polish Air Force’s 85th birthday, were escorted during the flight by two Polish air force fighter jets. The ceremony ignored marginal protests and heavily overcast Polish skies.

In the cockpits, the Israeli aircrews carried the names of all those recorded murdered in Auschwitz on this date exactly 60 years ago. They had picked the names out of the records at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem prior to flying to Poland last week.

The jets, displaying the blue Star of David, flew toward the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp as slowly as possible, followed the railroad tracks leading into the camp and crematoriums and then peeled away.
