Kokoda Conversion

I recently mentioned the role that the battle of Kokoda Track plays in Australian history. Kokoda Track has now played a role in turning around the life of a young rebel who once burned the Australian flag. After walking the grueling Track himself, the young man sees life through different eyes: “I’m here to change my life around . . . the only thing I can do from now on is to try and make it better and try and do things that would help instead.”

Getting close to history has a way of changing one’s perspective on the world, and one’s role in it.
