In the sentence “Nobody in the family could.” , the word “nobody” highlights contrast the reality and her mother’s hope. ‘Nobody’ in the family teach her how to read or write and it explains the reason why her mother agreed to handover her precise daughter. “It made me feel sad, taking this photo…the only one she had….” She uses emotive language to prove that she felt lonely and unhappy because she realised that the past government lied and her mother left her for nothing. The Australian government, they took children away from their families to suffer. They made a big tragic to Aboriginal people. However, the government refused to serially apologise. John Howard said “I do not believe that current generations of Australians could be held accountable for of regarded as guilty for the acts of railer generations….” He uses irony which implies the fact that he did not think that this was mistake done by them and the past government. “hearsay…interesting, but valueless” uses descriptive language, the word ‘valueless hearsay’ is used to express that the government deny the true and try to cover the tragic mistake. Their irresponsible attitude makes Aboriginal people angry. The three different voices written by the editor, victims and the government shares different values and aspirations.

However, it is known by the Aboriginal community as Survival Day. “January 26” is also a protest song and personal reflection on the meaning behind the day. “That's that land-taking, flag-waving attitude” uses colloquial language to express that their ‘land’ was ‘taken’. The words of song shows the listener that Aboriginal people dislike others to celebrate it as happy event of the born of Australia, It is disrespectful to them. “Make us celebrate anything but survival” The use of repetition to prove the listener today also is Survival Day, is a tragic day for Aboriginal people. Their value of understanding Australia National day as their survival day and not celebrating it as the start of a new country, but as the end of a tragic event is highlighted.
